Precursor Games have announced that the Shadow of the Eternals project has been put on hold following three unsuccessful crowdfunding campaigns. The team says they’ll be taking a break and want to thank fans for their support. According to the team, the project isn’t completely dead, but they felt that they needed to step away and the group will reconvene if they feel the time is right to pursue the game again.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to put the Shadow of the Eternals project on hold. We are very happy with what we have accomplished both as a group and with the community. The community has blown us away and was the one thing that kept us going through it all – we cannot thank you enough.”
How do you feel about this? Precursor Games originally launched a self-published site that hoped to gather enough money to launch the game before launching on Kickstarter. When those two efforts failed, the team wrapped them up and then launched a third Kickstarter seeking less money in order to launch the game. That effort also fell short of the necessary funds.
