Ravidrath from Lab Zero: People should not try to raise money for Annie, we've already got work for more than a year

Ravidrath from Lab Zero: People should not try to raise money for Annie, we've already got work for more than a year With all 5 of the DLC characters now chosen to be included in Skullgirls, many fans still have favorites they'd like to see added to the roster. Ravidrath from Lab Zero Games keeps active over on the NeoGAF forums and recently dropped a bit of information on one of the characters included in the DLC polls, Annie.

It seems there is still a high demand for Annie and Ravidrath stated that he recommends fans do not try and raise money for her. He goes on to say that the team is already booked with work to occupy the next year adding more wouldn't be a great idea.

Below is a bit from Ravidrath.

I dunno, I think I should go on record and say that people should NOT try to raise money for Annie.

We've already got work for more than a year, and a lot could change in that time. I think there's a good chance that Autumn's lawsuits will be resolved one way or another, and I think Annie would be a priority after Umbrella, Black Dahlia and Marie.
