I do agree that PE's scope is huge and I have no idea how they are going to pull it off in 18 months, secret investor or not. Sometimes it's not about the amount of people you can throw at a project, there are certain bottlenecks that are more or less fixed. For example, their endless paths dungeon is just a small part of their game but that's actually a huge piece of content that has to be made and tested a gazillion times. The endless paths could be a game in itself, more or less Torchlight.
