All of such concerns of the fans seem to be true. The title is in huge disarray at this very moment if all the news reported are believed to be correct.

This led Grubb to say, “They [Rare] try to talk diplomatically about it when they’re in public and they’re like, ‘Oh, people hear things about a creative director leaving and the thing’s getting rebooted and that’s overstated.’ It’s not that overstated. They’ve rebooted that thing and they don’t know exactly the state of it. In terms of what they expect it to be, they are still figuring that out. And it’s a mess.”
