The damage IS done. No one who isn't a hardcore old-school RPG gamer will buy this at this point - and they have basically eliminated the possibility of broadening the audience. Folks such as myself who wrote about it before-hand were asked to render a verdict, and by and large the verdict is 'it might be playable after a few weeks or so, but if you haven't played and enjoyed the originals or games that are 20+ years old … skip this one, it will never appeal to you'.

I would say they have cut their sales to perhaps 25% of the potential. At best.
