“New exciting opportunities” discovered that will make the game better, according to CEO.
Precursor Games has announced that it is halting the current Kickstarter campaign for Shadow of the Eternals, in development for PC and Wii U. The crowd-funding on Precursor’s own site will also be halted on June 6th due to a “host of new exciting opportunities that will make the game better than we envisioned”. However, CEO and founder Paul Caporicci has stated that it will relaunch both crowd-funding campaigns in a matter of weeks.
“This doesn’t mean we are going away — far from it. We’ll be re-launching the Kickstarter in just a few short weeks with a reveal of these exciting new developments,” said Caporicci in a public statement.
“As we’re closing the current Kickstarter campaign not a single dime from this campaign will be removed from supporters’ accounts and everyone from our website’s crowd-funding campaign will receive full refunds via PayPal.
“As we re-tool our campaign and continue development, the forums on our site will remain open and active and any interested fans can still join the ‘Order of the Unseen’ to see our progress and join in the fun of creating content for the game themselves.”
Currently, the Kickstarter campaign has amassed 2,399 backers, who pledged $127,387 of the $1,350,000 goal with 13 days remaining.
