Precursor Games’ crowdfunding campaign for Shadow of the Eternals hasn’t been going well. With 13 days to go, the developer’s Kickstarter campaign has only raised $127,962 in pledges, which is less than 10% of their $1,350,000 goal (an additional $157,345 has been raised through a PayPal campaign).
But perhaps all is not lost.
In an update on the Precursor Games website, CEO Paul Caporicci has announced that the Kickstarter campaign will be suspended on Thursday, June 6 because of “a host of new exciting opportunities” that have become available.
Caporicci wouldn’t go into specifics, but he did say that we’ll all learn about it soon, when the Shadow of the Eternals Kickstarter campaign is relaunched in a few weeks. All current donations that came in through the Kickstarter campaign and via PayPal will be refunded.
So has a big-name publisher agreed to fund Shadow of the Eternals? Because it certainly sounds like that’s the case.
