Nooo, they will probably hire a hundred "analysts" (i.e guys in suits who do too much drugs and have no idea of anything ever) and claim that the "target audience" is too small.
Then, they will claim that the game needs more "mass appeal" and a "broader audience". Then they will make it more like call of duty, but worse. Tack on a cinematic campaign while you´re there. Then they will spend a hundred million dollars on marketing while telling the world that this game has to "exceed their expectations" of fucking selling 5 Million copies on the first DAY.
They will then waste even more money by hiring even more guys in suits who do way too much dugs and have no idea what they´re doing. Then they will probably release it 4 years too late, to a market that never existed on the same day a new assasins creed game is released. But yeah, I´m with you- they SHOULD make this game.
or, you know, it would've cost too much to finish (despite what he says no way was it 99% done, not even) for what it would've gotten
but nope blame it on suits who want to make everything call of duty, that's surely a great solution
be realistic, nostalgia alone does not a good games market make.
