Because I feel GF is trying to break the mold if you will that they had built in the first four gens. First a sequel instead of a director's cut. Now going to Gen VI instead of remakes. I just feel that they might be done with remakes for awhile, possibly for good as far as they had been so far. In two years it'll be the 20th anniversary and I wouldn't be surprised if the remade R/G in 3d. But they might just VC it. I could be wrong though. It's onlyy opinion based off of my observations.
