Like a lot of other people, I'm very much looking forward to 2.0. However, with what we know about 2.0 and the current development team, do we really have any reason to believe that it'll succeed?
The current team behind the game has had less time and resources to develop 2.0 than the original team had for 1.0. In addition, while new director/producer Yoshida has played the part of the mascot perfectly, he doesn't have a whole lot of experience developing online games (or any games for that matter). On top of all that, they're trying to "fix" the PC version (with what little PC experience any of them have) while simultaneously developing the PS3 version.
Realistically, it doesn't seem like 2.0 has much of a chance (although I hope I'm wrong).
