Penny Arcade co-founder Mike Krahulik has told Joystiq that there will be no further Penny Arcade Adventures. Speaking at PAX East last weekend, Krahulik said, “We’re actually not making a third episode of the game.”
Why? Blame DeathSpank. According to the other half of the Penny Arcade duo, Jerry Holkins, Hothead’s work on DeathSpank would have had an adverse affect on a third Penny Arcade Adventures title.
“They definitely could’ve done both games. I think they could’ve made DeathSpank and Episode 3 but I think Episode 3 would’ve suffered,” said Holkins. “I mean, I know it would have suffered. So we’d rather not do it than do it half-assed.”
It’s not all bad news though. Holkins says that the pair will conclude the digital-only RPG series’ story in comic form. “We’re going to finish that story but it’s going to be on our website,” he said.
