They will conclude that UX/DR just simply didn't the right business models & make adjustments for the next one.I'm not sure why it's supposed to be inevitable. If it was profitable, they wouldn't have shut down UX + DR.
Remember, Dark Road was the "next" one (despite being launched from the same program), and it barely got started before the shut down was announced.
There truly should never be another one, and the Genshin route (making games that feel like real games but are still calculated to take advantage of people) is astronomically even worse. If SE ever wants to do another one, Nomura should refuse to participate, but he might not be able to resist taking the opportunity to get some writing in. This is what the death of handhelds brings.
I would be down for Switch getting a BBS/DDD-caliber game as the means of keeping handheld gaming alive.
