Ok, Before the High Posters get in here and poopoo all over your world...
The short answer is YES.
But dont expect it to be called anything more than GI Joe.
Currently we have seen some Target exclusives resurrecting some old gi joe molds and that is a positive sign. Are we gonna see a SNAKE in the movie? Probably not but it's in this line to keep us hardcore original fans interested while the ROC line plays it's role.
Roc wont be around for ever but the GI JOE line itself is doing very well so why would they trash it...but beware, if the ROC line does poorly, we can expect somewhere in the neighborhood of 5 waves in the following year vs 10. Hasbro will need to gain our confidence back...and their own.
Hasbro will likely take a bow to the Star Wars line and do what they know works. Unfortunately we will see lots and lots of repaints on core characters both in and out of ROC. Star Wars in my opinion is going south fast, parents and kids are gonna get sick of 1700 clones with different paint jobs and it's gonna tank without new material to bring new life to the line. The Live action will likely spawn some real cool vehicles and figures and no doubt a few new Vaders.
But as for GI Joe, we got a taste of Resolute and for the most part most of us liked it and Hasbro will likely use Resolute as the "clone wars" for GI Joe.
Look back and you'll see GI Joe has a limited character base. From vintage days, there were lots of figures but they were not infinite...and aside from a few Joes and some key Cobra's and a few of Vipers, their isnt much vintage material to cover. So for the GI Joe line to continue there needs to be new stories and Resolute may be just that.
One other thing to mention, GI Joes, todays Joes are pretty much perfect, they have infinite articulation and are pretty good likenesses. Star Wars had to define those over the years and that's why there are 1300 Vaders...Each figure from the inception of the 25th has been very good and replacements aren't really needed.
But long answer over...I think you can count on ROC bringing some new (old) stuff into the line and it keeping the flame alive for a while longer. There will likely be reissues too...

new stories are just a way to create new versions of old characters, but that in no way effects how many more characters can exist in the Joe universe without the need for new stories. they can continue to add those new characters to ROC, or add them to Resolute, or the ME line, or an entirely new story.
High Poster out.
