Not according to Dan:

Again we are game.
Good post flash - the only thing I'd add to that is that if the Devs had been more open with their plans and the justification for it then perhaps a lot of this animosity could have been avoided.

There's no good reason to keep things like this behind a curtain other than to have a big marketing splash over it - that's important, yes - but just like with New Romulus, all Cryptics plans come undone because they hint at one thing and deliver something altogether different.

This game has many faults, but by far the biggest is the lack of involvement with the community that allows it to thrive.
