3D was only kinda sorta in development before I think Rockstar bought out Shiny and the main team in charge was dismissed. It seems that anyone else was just not capable of making another Earthworm Jim game. Or the people they did hire were just not fans. And weird cartoony wacky games were not exactly something Rockstar wants to cultivate as a series anyway so I doubt they care.EJW 3D was really bad. But the reason for this was as far as I know Shiny Entertainment was bought out and the IP just got forgotten in the process. I have not forgotten about it as you can see in my forum avatar.
