"WE DON'T NEED NG+ RIGHT NOW"I can more or less mimic a New game + myself, using mods, but I exceptionally encourage the REDS to implement it for those that want it on the vanilla game. There's absolutely nothing wrong with NG+.
Would also suggest the REDS to consider an (Optional) extreme difficulty setting to go along with it. You'll then offer an entirely new gaming experience with little developer input. Square Enix, Konami and other dev teams, did it a couple of times too with some previous games.
