Talking The Return of OLD Hoxton!!! (Payday 2)

Hello all,
As many of you know, a petition was going to return the OLD Hoxton for Payday 2. I just read a tweet on Goldfarb twitter and these are his quotes. "I think he might make an appearance soon..."
If you want to read the tweet here it is. https://twitter.com/locust9/status/379488614700548096
Hopefully he comes back soon!
Thanks, Droidaka.

He'll show up, but I don't know if he'll return exactly as the petition wanted as a playable character. Could be just as an NPC; as a cameo appearance.

They've already changed Hoxton's canon as a brother of Dallas, and American; which they'd need to adjust if he's brought back to replace the current Hoxton.

People don't seem to realize that Hoxton was originally American early in Payday 1, as evidenced in the URLs in the steam profile for each of the character pictures. So, with that in mind, it's not at all surprising they changed him back to American.

Dallas = Russian
Wolf = German
Chains = Spanish
Hoxton = American

If he does come back as an NPC, I doubt the crew will be calling him "Hox".. Are we breaking him out of jail, or something?

I thought these were new people that they had just given the same 'codenames' to?

I could go for that. Make it as if he is out of the business with the gang, but is still able to give leads on heist and contracts,

nope !
That is definitly wrong. Hoxton was NEVER an American in Payday 1 when you read the backgroundstories of them (payday1) http://www.1up.com/do/blogEntry?bId=9089852

Dallas & Chains : American
Wolf : Swedish
Hoxton : British

Just in the developing phase of PAYDAY 1 Overkill was thinking about the nationalitys of a crew.

Trivia nugget #1: They were originally people from different countriesOriginally, the plan was to have four robbers of different nationality in the game, so that each robber's accent would be distinct and instantly recognizable. This idea was later scrapped, as you all understand - but in the code, the robbers are still named "american", "german", "russian" and "spanish".
First there was just these nations as names. Not "Hoxton : American etc."... and in the developing phase they looked for possible names for the 4 characters ( #2 in trivia thread)

For the main release of the game, yes, Hoxton was changed to be British. Originally in the beta, he was not.

Their background profiles were not detailed until after their original nationalities were scrapped and changed for the main release. Otherwise, Dallas still would've been Russian, Wolf German, etc.

They still inferred nationality of a character, based on naming them after a nationality.

There would not be such evidence, such as the pictures I linked to on Steam, otherwise.

Also, there's beta audio files in Payday 1 that reinforce this.

Or even better, Cyclone as a contractor.
