Ashes of Creation Becomes the Most Funded MMO On Kickstarter
Ashes of Creation and the team at Intrepid Studios are pleased to announce that over 19,000 people have pledged their support with over $3,200,000 raised during the month long Kickstarter process. Originally having a goal of just $750,000, Ashes of Creation has added every possible Stretch Goal on their road to funding.
This incredible support has led Intrepid Studios and Ashes of Creation to becoming the most funded MMO on Kickstarter of all time. The community support for the game is now fueling efforts by the development team and the momentum is still growing even as the Kickstarter campaign comes to a close.
“This is simply stunning. We cannot thank the fans of Ashes of Creation enough for their support. We promise we won’t let you down, and we’re absolutely thrilled to find so many like-minded gamers who want to see the MMORPG genre truly move forward.” – Steven Sharif, CEO and Creative Director of Intrepid Studios.
“Because of the high amount of members that requested alternate payment methods that Kickstarter did not offer, I have decided that during the month of June I will extend our crowdsourcing through our website for those of you who were unable to purchase packages through Kickstarter. All backers from Kickstarter will benefit from this additional month of funding with some pretty awesome backer goals and rewards, which we will be releasing today. We will have the ability for Kickstarter pledges to be upgraded as well.” – Steven Sharif, CEO and Creative Director of Intrepid Studios.
We have some special announcements to make in the coming weeks, but for now the team is eager to make the game they’ve promised to their legion of hopeful players. Keep an eye on AshesofCreation.com for more information on the game and its systems moving forward.
