Precursor Games Will Not Give Up on Shadow of the Eternals
Just yesterday I wrote an article talking about the recent failure on Kickstarter to launch Shadow of the Eternals, the spiritual successor to the Nintendo’s GameCube’s Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem. This was Precursor Games second attempt at bring this game to life. The campaign ended this past Friday at Midnight, ending with only $323,950 in donations from 5,932 backers for the project. Precursor Games target goal was $750,000
Yesterday I mention that I wondered if Precursor games would give up after this second failed attempt. With a recent update from the company on their project’s Kickstarter page they thanked all of the support they received from the many backers on their project and also said that they have not given up just yet, by saying they will “pursue other avenues” to bring Shadow of the Eternals to the masses.
Precursor Games made the following statement:
It is unfortunate that we were unable to crowd-fund this project at this time, but we have not given up. We intend to pursue other avenues with the ultimate goal of having our games come to fruition.
This last attempt was launched on July 25th. There was even mention that they were to have popular Metal Gear Solid voice actor David Hayter do the voice for the main character in the game, detective Paul Becker. That right there, is pretty awesome if you ask me. If the campaign had been successful, Precursor Games was planning on launching the game next year, sometime in October, for the Nintendo Wii U, PC via Steam, and the Sony PlayStation 4.
After yesterday’s article, I’m happy to hear that Precursor Games has yet to throw in the towel on the Shadow of the Eternals project. Let’s just hope that the saying rings true, and that the third time is truly a charm.
