They certainly do not make any extra money on this, so I appreciate any effort and support from their side.
I have to agree with BigDuke; There has been what, one patch since the game was released two years ago, despite a couple of major issues (air interdiction and shore guns), and a host of smaller ones?
As to "not making any extra money on this", I have bought this game four times in the last twenty years, never with any kind of discount for owners of the previous edition. Moreover, the changes in that time have been incremental and it is rather hard to believe that they have squeezed money from players to buy the game four times despite the fact that the game has changed so little. Are we supposed to wait (and pay for) TOAW V to get the next patch?
Finally, to contrast this game with another 20 year old game system, look at Tiller's games. Many of his games are also twenty years old, and have been patched regularly over the years.
Just in the last couple of years many of them have received free and significant upgrades (not even bugs, as here, but upgrading graphics, etc).
