Default Ep2. Canned?

http://zdmedia.vo.llnwd.net/o1/Podcasts/CGW/121306.mp3

The guys on this podcast believe Sin Ep2 is canned or soon will be, something people in this forum have been speculating. Anybody else heard any news or how this relates to recent departures at ritual.

Story and transcript on Kotaku:
http://www.kotaku.com/gaming/sin/sin...ned-222074.php

I don't think it's ridiculous. Episode 1 sold poorly, key members left Ritual, and no one from Ritual has made an upfront statement that "yes, Sin Episode 2 is going to happen" to silence these rumors. That's really the damning piece of evidence; I can understand them withholding details/media/whatever about the game, but it seems they won't even confirm that they're making it and there's no reason to withold that.

I mean read Ken Harward's statement after the depatures:

"I'm really looking forward to helping guide Ritual," said Ken. "2007 looks to be a great year as we finish up our current projects and start some exciting new ones. I'm excited to have the opportunity to expand my leadership role within the company, and I'm flattered by the huge amount of support everyone in the tribe has shown. There's a ton of positive energy in the halls."

"current projects", why so ambiguous? The lack of any specific mention of Sin Episodes 2 is rather conspicuous. If it was going to happen, no doubt he'd say something like "and we're really excited about Episode 2" to put all this speculation to rest.

It's not going to happen people. I'm not anti-Ritual, in fact I'd love if I had to eat my words in a month or two, but I am rational and it's hard to draw any other conclusion from the evidence at hand.

*claps*

Sign the man up for the CIA. He's added such convincing evidence from a game blog site and industry experts from a magazine which add so much more to what we don't already know

Until Ritual actually says something themselves, its pure conjecture, worrying conjecture albeit, but conjecture nonetheless. And conjecture is ridiculous, because it paramounts to bait tactics on the Internet.

And for the love of God, do not intersperse legal terminology when you opine. It insults the intelligence of those who know what they actually refer to.

I know you're a fan of the game and all and don't want to acknowledge that there's a chance it might not come out, but there's no need to be a sarcastic jerk and get angry at me.

I agree it's conjecture, but I'm not going to refrain from saying it just because someone else might not like it.

Legal terminology? What the heck are you talking about? Because I used the word evidence? Yeah that's real legaleze there; man I better cut back on it so people who didn't go to Standford can understand (see, two can play the sarcastic jerk game). Jeeze I'm sorry your upset, but no need to grasp at straws to try to insult me.

I'm not going to refrain from calling it a beating of the dead horse, so welcome to the world of the counterargument. Nothing said in the cast or the site added anything at all new.

As for being a sarcastic jerk, yes I prefer to use sarcasm rather than suffixing words like jerk. I didn't see the need when debating this to resort to an ad-hominem insult but I guess you did, as well as applying emotions to my post which cannot be derived on such a medium (angry, upset, insult). Thicker skin is beneficial on the net.
