He made the first TPS style action RPG with Ultima 9 that later inspired Piranha Bytes with Gothic. He determined the standards of MMORPGs with Ultima Online. 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.
OMG I'm not alone in this, if any games/dev make me excited about RPGs its him, my childhood was all about the ultimate games.
If you don't stand behind your troops, feel free to stand in front.
