The engine was changed so much that it's not covered under any Hero update or support, so they can't even ask Hero for help.
It's these changes that have caused all the problems with lag, bugs and the ability to add certain features since launch when most of the coders left Bioware. The Dev team are still trying to decipher some of what those coders have done.
When people say the engine can't handle it, they aren't talking about a full version of Hero, they are talking about this beta, customised, abortion version of Hero.
