It's a bold statement, based on a lot of commercial production experience with both IDEs, but not a hyperbolic one. Sure, FreeType can be built with VS2013, but why bother now VS2015 is out? VS2013 wasn't a very long-lived version. If an old version should be supported it would be better to maintain support for VS2008, which a lot of people used for five or six years.

I don' think it's necessary to support VS2013. It was buggy and incomplete compared to VS2015, which is much better.

That's a pretty bold & hyperbolic statement.  There is nothing intrinsically wrong with VS2013 Update 5 (or even earlier versions) to build FreeType.
