Things were looking awfully dire, but Harmonix’s Amplitude reboot has reached its funding goal after impassioned pleas (and pledges to match) from Insomniac, Markus “Notch” Persson, Jerry “Tycho” Holkins, and many more.
As of May 18, Amplitude’s Kickstarter campaign was sitting at about 50% funded with less than a week to go. That’s when Insomniac’s Ted Price got the ball rolling with a $7,500 pledge and a plea to get the game funded. Fans far and wide spread the word and the Internet responded with almost a full day to spare.
As long as everything goes according to plan, Harmonix expects to launch the Amplitude reboot on the PS3 and PS4 in March 2015. And with a fully-funded Kickstarter campaign, there’s nothing to stop them now.
