It doesn't sound good. At least I haven't finished the first game yet, so I won't be too disappointed if they cancel Second Chapter and Final Chapter.
All I can really do is assure you guys that progress is slow, but existent. Theres still a mountain of work left to do, though, and were still on pretty shaky ground with this title," Tom Lipschultz, Localization Specialist, explained. "The first game hasnt exactly turned out to be a top-seller for us so far (despite overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans), which means we really cant justify prioritizing the second (especially given its insane length). But were not giving up! We still plan to move forward, slowly but surely, until the project either gets done or becomes completely and totally unfeasible whichever comes first. If series fans want to hurry us along, theyll need to convince more people to buy the first game so we can have more funding to hire more people to work on the second, and have bigger numbers to convince our investors that Trails 2 is worthy of being prioritized.
