I don’t believe anyone owes anyone an apology. It’s just the public that went batshit insane over a quote that was taken out of context and spun around and blown out of proportions. That did not come out of 2K’s mouth, by the way, but TRS’ own devs.
I myself saw nothing wrong with the quote, but people tend to be very self-centred when it comes to DLC and the like. I’m happy with the DLC that’s offered, but people think it’s all day 1, on-cd DLC, which is the issue-- it’s not. It was just announced a tad too early and led people to think so.
A sad mishap, but from the numbers so far, I’d say this game is set for success.
