Aright, this surely isn’t going to sit well with the massively multiplayer online games’ fans. One of the upcoming role playing game in the same genre, Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen has stumbled upon financial instabilities that have led to an expected slowed development. Backers, we feel for you.
Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen was originally tried on Kickstarter where it failed to gather the targeted $800,000 though the developer Visionary Realms continued to raise money for it even after the campaign ended.
Now, the team that is led by Brad McQuaid has announced that they have depleted their initial resources while trying to win over the interest of investors. They further said:
“[This] regrettably means that development is going to slow down until finances can be secured. It’s not something we want to do by any means, but as we cannot guarantee paychecks to the team, they each need to be able to spend time on other things to pay the bills.
Once we’re able to get that level of funding we can then secure much-needed studio space and be able to pick up the pace of production dramatically. We are deeply thankful to this community for getting Pantheon to this critical point, where we have been able to put together an attractive package to present to potential investors.”
Well, that is certainly bad news; but here’s hoping that Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen gets back on track soon, the game sounded like a good one back when its campaign was launched on Kickstarter.
