Thanks to everyone who supported our Gambitious crowdfunding campaign for Stronghold Crusader 2. Whether you donated, shared the news with friends or simply viewed one of our update videos we hugely appreciate you spreading the word. As you know our campaign did not fully fund, however rest assured all pledges have been cancelled and backers will not be charged any money. Crusader 2, the sequel to our favourite Stronghold game, will still be made and we will still be holding a beta. Here are our plans going forward:
Release Date – Crusader 2 is still on track for release in 2014 with all the same features, units and game modes originally planned for release. The only change we will have to make is that some additional game content will be made available a little later on post-release. This will be made available as a mix of free downloads and DLC.
Closed Beta – A closed beta will still take place in 2014, although the number of invites sent out will need to be reduced to keep the scale of the beta small and affordable. You can expect to hear more about the Crusader 2 beta next year.
