Reads more like a guess than a confirmation. Nothing else mentioned gives any hint to cut characters. Lets wait until Bamco confirms it or not before we start taking our pitchforks out. I doubt they are going to have a character they introduced as playable in the last game and then cut them for this game.


No there is confirmation that they will cut off characters from the previous work
