Yes but the PT didn't "retcon" Vader into being Palpatine's apprentice, the PT just revealed details about Palpatine and Vader that weren't known before. There's nothing from the OT that says there is only one Lord of the Sith or any statement that would exclude Palpatine from being one.
Palpatine is stated to not be a Sith and just a powerful dark sider pre PT.
the Visual Dictionary only says he uses the dark side, and the Shadows of the Empire sourcebook outright says he's not a Sith at all.
In the Thrawn Trilogy Zahn was originally going to make the Noghri the Sith, hence Vader's title of "Dark Lord of the Sith", so there wasn't much established about them back then.
Neither did *Dark Apprentice*, which specifically calls Vader the last Sith Lord without any mention of Palpatine. There's a distinction between "Sith" and "dark-sider", and the former wasn't much used in the pre-*TPM* EU, if at all.Added in 5 minutes 10 seconds:

Why? Because Solo

TFA made $4b; Iger's not going anywhere. His Lucasfilm purchase has more than paid off.
While I get some criticisms people have of TLJ, and I can see how their night be some weird production issues with the upcoming film, I really don’t understand this strange mentality that people have adopted that is so overtly negative.
Like, okay, I have my criticisms of Rogue one, but pretty much everything other than Solo, made major bank (and solo wasn’t a horrible failure). And the general consensus (not of the neckbeards that are upset over Laura dern having purple hair), for all the films is generally positive. Like...I have no idea how people are comparing these films track record to the prequels...
I’ve said this several times before, but I think as someone who didn’t overly hype any of these films, or get into the weird ultra FAN SPECULATION type hype culture, I saw these movies, enjoyed them, and that was it.
I disagree with this. TLJ is a mixed film and not everyone that didn't like are sexist, racist people or those who were upset with their theories not coming through.
The prequels didn't alter charcters to prop new characters. The prequels also haven't caused a slow down like TLJ did.
