I ask this because many people want a second season pass, but if we get one, the last of characters might not release until 2022

as we are now, we won't get the last character until February 2020

depending on if Nintendo or Sakurai decides to do a second Fighters Pass, they also need to decide if it will be done immediately after the first one ends, or wait a couple of months

Let's say that at E3 another fighter pass is announced, and the first character releases in Summer 2020, strangely around the time of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, then that fighter pass might not be complete until Fall of 2021

However if they wait til Fall or Winter of 2020 to announce the second Fighter Pass, it might not be complete til 2022

Now obviously the first fighter pass will be a success because a ton of Smash players will still be playing the game monthly in 2019

but how many fans will do so in 2022, and if it's not at least half or even a quarter, is it worth it developing all those characters that cost just as much as they did the first time with only a fraction of the userbase remaining?

I'll still most likely be playing it but yeah, a lot of the casual fanbase will have ditched the game. There may not be a second fighter pass, but they could possibly do a bonus DLC character after the fighter pack completes.

Not monthly but certainly occasionally.
After 6 years of lurking I finally decided to dive into this hell.
Got blocked by endgame after a single post. Am I cool yet?

Same here. I have done so for anywhere between 30 minutes to roughly 2 hours every day for every Smash title. It's no secret why.
I wish I could control all the elements of the world... then I wouldn't need a job.

If I'm still alive, then most likely
What do you mean "what the hell is a Funyarinpa"? You mean you don't know?! That's... that's practically blasphemous

Probably. Maybe not as much by myself, but with friends Smash is a must.
I'm online, therefore I am.

i mean, if the second fighter pass has someone i care about on it, i'd be more likely to play it in 2022 than i've been playing it in the last six months
