Deadfire's complete financial failure has probably killed RTWP for good.
1. PoE II now also has a turn-based mode. It changed nothing. 2. Pathfinder: Kingmaker outsold PoE II by a very a large margin.
What does that tell us? Probably that your assumption is very subjective and just plain wrong. I personally don't like the PoE series either and never even touched PoE 2, but I think that Pathfinder: Kingmaker is absolutely brilliant.
