  3. Pirate warriors 4 will not get more than 10 new playable characters

PW4 will probably get only 10 new characters so that the roster will be come 47 playable characters in total for a one reason:

Out of all genres for one piece,the only genre that still didn't get enough chance was "Fighting 3D arena" games.

They have to keep the number of playable characters as low as possible in PW4 to give chance for a next "fighting game" to come up with a higher number,so that it will sell well

Most probably the company that will make the next fighting one piece game will be Spike Chunsoft again, but this time they will give us the formula they used in Jump Force (which sold well btw)

Koji Nakajima ,the producer of most one piece games only cooperated with Ganbarion and Spike,so most probably we won't see any other company making games for one piece any time soon. Also most "big" companies are busy enough with their own projects, Dimps with Xenoverse 3 , ArcSys busy with FighterZ DLC and FighterZ sequel,CC2 busy with DBZKakarot.So we only have Ganbarion and Spike left, and Ganbarion will stay silent for quite a long time after the miserable failure of World seeker.

A similar incident happened back when PW3 was released, they had to keep the roster at 37 and only added 10 new characters to PW2 ,even though Pirate warriors 2 added 14 new characters to the first game,so that it doesn't exceed the no. of characters in Burning Blood base game (40 characters)

So we are basically getting a fighting game in 2021,with CaC, 40 character roster and developped by Spike Chunsoft. Adding to that we will get 9 DLC characters (just like Jump Force) and the total roster will be 49 for the next fighting one piece game. And this means they have to keep PW4 with a number of characters just lower than 49,so i guess 47 is their best choice here by adding 10 new characters only

Little too much tin foil in this post. There’s been no confirmation of a fighter and I honestly wouldn’t expect to see a burning blood sequel any time soon since it was very meh. Also, different genres so one doesn’t apply to the other, the real reason is the time span between PW2 and PW3 was incredibly short. They couldn’t do much to expand on the playable characters since between PW1 and PW3 the anime had only progressed 2 arcs and a very small amount of a 3rd arc. Dofalmingo’s officers hadn’t even been introduced. This game will finish 3 arcs and maybe start Wano. Each arc introduced a F ton of characters.

Why are you so fixated on this idea? You had this same stance when you misunderstood how Koei operated, and now you're back on it. Why?

Not necessarily gonna be all of them playable. I guarantee to you at least 20 new characters to cover Dressrosa,Zou,Whole cake island and Wano but guess what they will be new support/enemy only characters like Vergo,monet,Hody Jones in PW3

Note that Vergo,monet,hody jones all had whole movesets and skills and were almost ready to become playable characters,but for some reason they didn't make them playable although they had enough time in development (2 years) the only explanation is that they didn't have the "Green light" from Bandai Namco to push more playable characters into the roster

it's a speculation not for fact. But there are evidence that tell us that next OP game will be a fighting game by Spike since Jump Force has TONS of assets from the big 3 series (naruto,one piece and DBZ) and their chances in developping Naruto or DBZ games are pretty low,so they should be preparing for one piece game

Firstly, they WON’T use the same assets as Jump Force. Secondly the reason they limit the number of additions in any game is so they can sell those additions in a sequel. So IF they do limit the number of characters, it won’t be because of a fighting game, it’ll be because there’s a PW5 coming with an original story like PW2. The original story would add missing characters and expand slightly into Wano territory but save the story telling for a PW6. Regardless this is all baseless until they reveal something. Much like your original post.

You are totally wrong. When PW3 came out they had no plans for any more sequel to pirate warrior games ,here is an official confirmation from BN spokesman in 2015

So the reason why PW3 only had 10 new characters wasn't because they were saving the rest for PW4,it was because they wanted to keep the number lower than 40 to make Burning Blood has the largest roster of all one piece games
