Vivendi not publishing Syberia II

Microids denies French publisher's involvement with the game.

Last week, a 2004 VU Games release schedule briefly made it onto the publisher's corporate site, and one of the names on the list was "Siberia 2", leading to speculation that some sort of deal was on the cards.
