I like how a sequel is not being made, and a brand new 'IP' is, and that's seen as a bad thing. |

Not at all.
It's the bizarre reasoning that a 3 million seller is deemed as a failure. Besides one sequel to a decent game which had huge potential is hardly franchise saturation.

If you read the article closely, he says it wasn't a hit initially, but over time has managed to sell 3m.
They haven't ruled out a sequel at all, but they started this other game first and have to finish it.
They also said they could not secure enough funding to start the project on the scale they desired. They have chosen to wait until the time a right as they received more funding to start this new project.
