Have they actually confirmed that it will be episodic, and if so, do we know yet if our save data carries over, and to what extent?
They dropped the term "episodic" almost immediately, yet it's stuck with people/media.
It's confirmed it's a "multi-game series". No information on what, if anything, carries over between games.
