The long story short is that the people making this game are "PGI" which is a company that has a history of producing shovelware games or shovelware components for games: Bass Fishing, Duke Nukem Forever Multiplayer, Weapons of Mass Destruction (lol), some stupid/buggy-as-fuck Grand Theft Auto copy-cat, and MWO. Their upper management and producers are notorious for overhyping what they are capable of (and also really not good at game balance), and it shows in the disaster known as MWO, turning a once loved series that had tons of features and awesomness built into with a passion, into a shadow of its former self into yet another scammy F2P that's been gutting various old IP's lately.

Long story short. Do research into who is kickstarting games these days. If they wave some nostalgia in front of your face, and you have never heard of anyone on their team from the past games you loved, then go in cautiously.
