Quote from Wade Rosen, condensed for readability
I think it deserves… I think eventually like a good Bubsy game needs to be made. But so there’s a lot of IP that we acquired from that time frame in that acquisition. […] I think if there’s good Indie platforming teams and they want to reach out, we’d certainly be interested in hearing those things and they should reach out […] you can go to the site and reach out we’ll we watch it. We’ll get it.
A new Bubsy game in 2024 or beyond? What could possibly go wrong?
