Well I've recently heard from some source aka bumbleking fourms that someone asked about Hope Kintobor being absent in the Shadow Fall arc or Shadow the Hedgehog 2. lol Well apperantly one of the workers stated that they aren't taking the risk to use characters that were not made by SEGA, Satam or Ian Flynn, unless ya want to go through another conplicated lawsuit again, course that all depends if the former writers still care about them. So who knows if they'll some how track down previous writers/creators just to continue using specific characters. And who knows where these former writers are now, but at least they're not helping Penders make his Star Trek Knock Off Project, as far as I know. So what's going to happen now? Will certian characters still return or will they all end up in the Rejected World like most of Penders characters?
