I can't get excited until we start to get updates on the game. I don't think Retro is something that I would be excited about, just because there's so many things about the studio we don't know. But yeah, I think it's understandable why people would either dislike or like this news. I can understand why people would be happy or worried.
Ya I can see it both ways, on one hand the studio has made 3 great Prime games but on the other hand that was over a decade ago and many of the people who made those games are no longer with the company.
When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
