The Future of Stronghold Crusader 2


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.

If you have any further questions we can be easily reached on Twitter, Facebook or via our contact form.

  2. can’t wait till the release. i’m a big fan of all the Stronghold games. Will Crusader 2 be available on MAC?

  3. Hello guys huge fan of your games and extremely excited about Crusader II coming out! Wondering if the new one will be Mac compatible? The releases that have not been I still play but via a virtualpc so game play is alot less fun.

  4. ja hab mir shcon immer n neues Crusader gewünscht, vorallem mit online modus!. vorfreude riesieg

  5. Cool! Thank you so much firely.
    I’m not sure if this is a good idea, but i think there could be another approach such as making a founder pack for those who are interested to help. If you are familiar with Path of Exile, i’m referring to that model in which people who purchase your founder pack will receive in-game incentives such as props and customization without affecting the balance of gameplay. Also benefits which shows some kind of crest/symbol beside the name which symbolizes “founder”.

    no pressure, and there are those supporter
    who would love to help!

    Sorry for the rant. Though I’m rooting up for stronghold crusader 2 🙂
