Shadow of the Eternals Stops Kickstarter, Plans to Restart It

The crowdfunding campaign for Shadow of the Eternals, a sequel to Eternal Darkness, has been suspended, says Precursor games, the studio formed from the ashes of original developer Silicon Knights. Precursor says they'll "be re-launching the Kickstarter in just a few short weeks."

The reason for the suspension is "a host of new exciting opportunities that will make the game better than we envisioned," Precursor said on the campaign's Kickstarter page. These new opportunities presented themselves with "more support from our community than we had ever hoped for," after the campaign started.

The campaign opened May 13. Since then it has gathered $127,414 in donations, toward a $1.35 million goal. The campaign was set to close in 14 days.
