Seeing as they're on Sony (Or are they? Did they re-sign to the label after PFAYM?) and Sony put out the "Essential" collections, I'd say that this is a good bet.
Come now, don't make such a funeral face. It isn't dying that's sad; it's living when you're not happy.

If anything is getting repackaged, instead of another compilation, I think I'd rather see a 20th anniversary "Generation Terrorists" reissue, done in a similar fashion to the "Holy Bible" and "Everything Must Go" reissues. I don't think the band holds GT in the same high regard as those two, but it is important, with it being their debut and all, and there are songs that are still live staples even now, with others making occasional reappearances here and there.
Where there is light, shadows lurk and fear reigns.

The next "best of" shouldn't be released until after their next studio album. Then it should be a triple vinyl only release made up of the singles, best b-sides and the band's favourite non-singles.
