Really hope this is the case! I'm a long time fan/buyer of FM and i'm really not ready for the 3D viewer yet. Don't get me wrong, it's the right direction for the game, but it's still evolving. To do away with (the original) 2D classic is really disappointing at this stage.
Current 2D viewer, with the little black feet, looks like a backward step on previous installments.
Bought the beta, but think i'll wait for the improvements on full release.
Everything else looks excellent, polished and in depth (as always).
