Yeah, it's true.
They've coded Vanguard from the ground up to be flexible and incorporate new tech.
Something interesting to note. In that post, Brad talks about a "sekret project" they've been working on. There's been a rumor on the VG boards for a long time about a Sigil superhero console mmo. If Sigil hire a programmer for console work, it's likely it will be for that project, and not for Vanguard. That would be my bet...but you never know. Sigil have a few irons in the fires.
