You need some way to make someone completely new enjoy the game enough to stay (keep in mind what modern gamers expect), and to expose the game to enough new players to build a community. That's what's missing. You cannot rely on the player base from the previous games (TFC/FF) to build the community. There are a number of reasons this ends in disaster, it didn't work with FF, and hasn't worked for other attempts and modernizing old games.

Tbh unless you're actually making a Garry's Mod clone aesthetic and gametype modability is a secondary perk, it will keep people interested in a game they already like, but won't give them a reason to like it to begin with.

In short I don't think this is going to work, but this game doesn't have a lot to lose and I'll be interested to see how it pans out. Best of luck.
