What i really hate from Aksys is they seem to ignore their fans on their own forum...
If you don't mind my asking, how do you feel that you've been ignored? I couldn't tell you that we were trying to acquire Deathsmiles 2X if we were--that would affect contract negotiations. I follow every thread on these forums, and I do my best to answer any direct questions that I can respond to. Unfortunately, the nature of business means that I can't answer a lot of questions, and it seems kind of pointless to post in every other thread just to say "Sorry, no official comment".
In answer to your initial question, I can tell you that there is, unfortunately, no official comment on that issue, but that masuto and bucklemyshoe are correct: if you want to see DS2X, your best bet is to buy Deathsmiles when it comes out. I do pay attention to what people request on the forums, and convey that information to the people who are in a position to acquire new titles. They will be more likely to do so if it seems like a good business decision.
Data, data, data. I cannot make bricks without clay.
Alles andere ist käse.
And in case there is any confusion, yes, I do work for Aksys. If you have a questions, or care to verify my identity, you can e-mail me by putting my username in front of @aksysgames.com.
