If they can't handle updating a lot of existing material, it tells me two things:
1) Paizo didn't learn lessons from the first time the classes were introduced.
2) 2E, as a system, isn't as streamlined/simplified as they think. It will just seem that way because so much will be erased.
Paizo can update material as quickly or slowly as they like, my preference is still my preference.
Well there are other factors as well to consider:
1) They probably want to do more than just the bare minimum needed to make those classes work. And they are probably going to want to playtest many/most of these classes. That takes time, and introducing a million classes at once will diminish how much time any given class is playtested
2) Some people full stop won't buy a book that is just updates of existing content. To get those consumers, you really need to mix in new material as well
3) There are a finite number of options in any game system, even PF 2E. If you want the game to have legs, mass dumping updated content is going to rapidly fill up that design space. Slow and Steady = a system they can produce for longer.
