Quoted from kmoore88:
Never? You sure about that? They have the ability to modify the existing code and PPS has stated in more than a couple of threads that a CCr would "likely" include enhanced rules.
Sure, Rick has implied/straight up said multiple times that a potential CC re-release would include "finishing" the game. But CCC is a specific thing, meaning epthegeek's project, and Rick having someone write new rules to finish the game would be a different beast, someone else's vision of how to complete the game. Whether or not it would be as good (or better) than CCC would have to be seen. You'd have to buy the game based on those merits, not CCC, since CCC isn't compatible with the new hardware ala MMr.
Quoted from JoeJet:
Yep. I realize it's Rick's business but as a collector uncertainty and rumor sucks.
That ship has sailed though, Rick doesn't have to say anything, the writing is on the wall. Does anyone really think even if he doesn't say a word that after the success of MMr (well so far, but the Stern news makes it seem pretty solid going forward too) and the obvious moves to keep building up cool projects (2.0 games etc) that more remakes aren't coming? If you're trying to move A list games that's just reality now, no matter how quiet he is.
Not that keeping the value of anyone's collection artificially high is Rick's job.
