Wow. According to the any interview with Lorne Lanning, Oddworld is getting out of the game business due to frustration with the industry. Gamespy has another interview - dunno how I missed this.

This is sad. Lorne is a great game designer and art director. I was privileged to spend a few months in 2001 helping get Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee out the door and enjoyed every minute of it. There were some great developers there also, including Charles Bloom - one of the best programmers, and thinkers, I've met. It's a shame to see the franchise end.
