The engine upgrade doesn’t add new content, it’s allowed to be done, they could’ve even done it now. I find the timing and whole situation very suspicious, and I do expect something fishy happened.
I’m not asking or expecting you to believe me, as I have no proof at all. Just a gut feeling.
The Savini code issue, the jist of it is that they stated they only “printed” (digital tickets) tickets for Savini as they were ordered, but so many people were able to buy the codes right after release, and with all the proof in the video it’s pretty clear that Gunn is guilty. Whether it was the company as a whole, or a rogue employee doing it, something shady went on there.
They also made Savini Jason purchasable on Xbox for a day, but I honestly believe that incident was an accident.
