Here's the question/answer you are looking for
Question of Nemo (08.27.2022): Why is Return to Monkey Island being released on 19 September instead of Christmas, which would be better commercially? A:
The 19 September is a strategic and well-considered date because the new instalment of Ron Gilbert's famous point-and-click series is being released on International Talk Like A Pirate Day in the USA.
An April Fool's Day?
Ron Gilbert, its creator, first promoted his game for this year in what appeared to be an April Fool's joke, but a few days later it turned out that he wasn't really joking. The new game is a direct sequel to The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2 : LeChuck's Revenge.
