So far they doing a great job and they realy wanne ac2 succeed luckly for me they try keep it old school and won't implement much new generation featers most know from wow and other themeparks.
AC2 as you know is kind close to sandbox with littlebit of themepark.
Its a great game for all who wanne experience a old game with open world no insatnce no guidance no quest hubs or npc's with ! above head, its there where its very close to sandbox.
It have nice drops that reminds you of themeparks with fun stuff you can travel fast by portals.

That is really cool, and it looks like the developers are doing it the right way. They already like the core of the game and aren't going to change it.. They are working on polishing the game before it goes live with reinstating the friends list as a top priority. They are not trying to speed development up, but instead taking the time to learn the scripts used in the past first.
One goal that they plan to work on is to be able to compare items side by side. They are also working on shoring up KvK.
They are also only planning to run one server (no dedicated PK server), and if I read it right, keep the same subscription model in that one sub for both AC1 and AC2. Severlin said one server is big enough to handle the amount of people that should play. I think this is really wise and probably something they should have done before they closed AC2 the first time. They should have combined Frostfell and Thistledown.
One question on my mind is I wonder if they will eventually use the SOE model and charge a monthly sub for all their games. I think that would be wise because you can only play one game at a time. And if you want to take a break from one game, you may be more likely to keep subbing by moving to another one of their games.
