The OOT is a niche as it is, the BR sales of the SEs prove it enough. They have no reason to go back to the OOT.
Yeah, they are definitely in no hurry to get them out there that's for sure, the updated versions has repeatedly proven to be a huge success, it worked in '97 and it worked in 2004 and it also worked last year. Even on this site where the majority is supposed to be mostly interested in the original trilogy, I'm sure about 90% bought the recent release. There's a market and a demand for the originals, yes, but it's nothing that's on a priority list especially when its creator doesn't want it to happen.
We want you to be aware that we have no plans—now or in the future—to restore the earlier versions.
