wow! im glad you're making a much needed sequel to the series. I hope you meet the expectations and hopes from this community as good as you can.
the biggest flaws to avoid:
- no pay2win (no dlc's to win either)
- get the melee right
- get it integrated on steam, if u want it to become popular and have a large playerbase
- To remain popular over time : include map editor and higly moddable (steam mods).
Looking forward to this!
Put on kickstarter & keep us updated if u want some small funding from community members like myself.
EDIT: THey will use unreal engine!
