With each Ultima game he drew the boundaries of this genre. So in theory he has his fingers on nearly every RPGs we are playing. We are talking about 30 years of experience here.
So I expect something unique and revolutionary from him. Although I admit KS information is a bit vague. Anyway we will wait and see.
