“You’re assuming a lot based on the platform [the new game (opens in new tab)] is on,” a rep cautioned skeptics: “wait for the official announcement before making up your mind.” Mikko Rautalahti, one of the series’ writers, stressed no official info could be given, but advised patience: “I think I can say without any hyperbole that we’ve definitely got you covered on [the value for money] front. Of course it’s still up to you whether you like it, but maybe you’d like to, y’know, see something about the game before you pronounce it horrible?”
