I'll try to forget that and just enjoy Risen 2 for what it is, hopefully.
Have no fear, because they still have Gothic and we will get our medieval RPG some day.
Since the good folk at PB already have a well established medieval IP (Gothic) on their hands (or they'll get it soon), it'd be wise to change Risen into something a little different, because Risen 1 was practically a Gothic game and having two IPs with exactly the same theme would be absurd. Now they have two IPs with two different themes.
