The developers of Ty are probably so desperate to get some exposure they would throw him in there at no charge. Seriously. Abe is actually someone they should consider though, a truly unique character. But the fanbase may not be large enough to justify it.
I still think we may see someone from MK. Kendall knows those guys, they lent Kratos for MK, and Boon even stated he wanted someone in PASBR. They need to make it happen, and Capcom needs to make Ryu happen, so we can finall have SF vs. MK.
With that said, we will see if they use resources to add a MK first.
A "more realistic" final four than Snake, Cloud, Crash, and Wander would probably be Kat, Chimera, Scorpion or Sub Zero, and Crash.
Its obvious they tried for Crash so he's either in or Activision wouldnt budge. Omar acknowledged the demand for Kat, Boon wants an MK character, and Resistance already has a ton of presence but no rep. They just seem more likely.
The team ICO characters just seem like a lost cause at this point. I would have wanted them as much as anyone else, but it sounds like a mess. I also wonder about Snake because of the leak. If they werent happy with the way Raiden was introduced, are they still going to play nice for Snake? Who knows at this point, I guess.

This. I honestly forgot about Ty until all of this. Hell, I'd still have forgotten about him if it wasn't for this forum.
