(re: Why wasn’t Space Quest 5 a CD game?)
I think the reason was that SQ5 didn’t really sell all that well. I recall a majority of Sierra games from the ’91-93 period were being periodically re-released with enhanced audio and speech. When SQ5 came out, it was my understanding it didn’t sell well enough to warrent for the game to be put back in production and manufacturing on CD.
Or I could be wrong. 😉
