By all accounts they eliminated a lot of mechanics (public transit, large cities) which would not necessarily be a step forward. Maybe the economic model is a step forward but I cannot play to find out.
It did add work but from a companies perspective this is a cost center not a profit center especially since they are not collecting monthly fees. You can justify post release maintenance either through continued fees or continued sales and I dont expect them to get either at this point unless they fix this quick. Even if they do fix it quick I think the damage is done.
The final thing though is that I'm betting the game will be available for dirt cheap prices much earlier than it normally would have been so it may be in a sale or 2 for them to try to lure customers back assuming they fix the issues or enough users drop out.
