Shadow Of The Eternals Is Far From Dead!

The long awaited Eternal Darkness sequel, Shadow of the Eternals, has been confirmed to be very much alive despite rumors to the contrary. After a couple failed crowd funding campaigns, Precursor Games has had to quietly put the game on the back burner while they work on other projects and figure out how to get the game made. Precursor Games Social Manager Phil Haymes has told fans via the official forums that Shadow of the Eternals is still alive but fans shouldn’t expect any major news anytime soon.
“We’ll be continuing to upgrade and keep the forums running and we’re taking a look at where the SOTE project is at, potential options and directions for the future as well as going over lessons learned from the campaigns.”
“We very much intend to keep the project alive and get back to production but please understand that there probably won’t be any major news or update for a while yet. We’ve got a lot of work ahead to understand the options available to us going forward and to do the best thing by the game.”
This is harsh news for fans who have waited well over 10 years for a follow up to the stunning Eternal Darkness but still gives hope for the sequel. Personally, I hope Nintendo will take greater notice of the game and step in to fund its production in exchange for exclusive Wii U rights as the game could join the ranks of Bayonetta 2 as a real showpiece for the system. Considering that the team was looking for less than 2 million to complete the project, it would be a cheap and easy addition to the system. What do you think should be done with the game?
