Yes. Please let this be true, and please have it on PC again. That game was ideal for the "just needed some refinement of the mechanics and some opening up of the story/world" move. Andy's right though, all of this has to be on purpose. They know we bite at the heels with hope at little snippets of info like this.
More shooting: We found that the game just wasn't shooty enough.
Focus on Multiplayer: The main campaign is now 1 hour long.
Presumably the protagonist is also now a white male and the primary color schemes of the game are blue and orange.
You know, multiplayer in this game could be pretty cool. Others runners flying over your head, maybe become the police in some else's game and try to shoot them while they're running, or some kind of asynchronous thing. That would involve imagination, so we'll probably see Battlefield 4 with a bright color scheme and parkour, but we'll see.
