Last month, Precursor Games held a Kickstarter for Shadows of the Eternals, but the campaign was suspended. In a post on the Precursor Games forums, Paul Caporicci, CEO of Precursor Games—a studio that formed from the ashes of Silicon Knights—says that they learned of the charges today and that due to their serious nature, McCulloch is "no longer affiliated in any way with Precursor Games."

According to the Bullet News report, McCulloch is currently in custody, pending bail. We've contacted Precursor Games about the matter and will update this post as soon as we hear back.

Update: Here's the police report from Niagara Regional Police Service.

The only thing that stops me from shunning him when faced with these charges is how vague they are, especially since something like underage hentai is considered cp. I don't know what was actually on his computer or what his involvement was in "making child pornography available".
