Another Shadowrun Kickstarter Next Month

Harebrained Schemes announces on their Shadowrun Returns Kickstarter page that they will return to the crowdfunding platform next year with the proposal for another Shadowrun game. That's all there is to know about this for now, the update simply says "Shadowrun returns to Kickstarter January 2015," and there's an accompanying graphic that essentially says the same thing, leading to a forum discussion of what setting fans would like to see for the next installment in the cyberpunk RPG series.

Umm, why do they need another kickstarter? Didn't they make any money from the first game?

This is a niche game, they may not have sold a lot of copies outside of the kickstarter game, thus the need for more money when developing a new title.

The reality is the first game wasn't all that great and it took until dragonall before you could even customize characters. So the "real game" didn't even get made compared to how Shadowrun is supposed to be.

They made a lot of concessions and it took forever to get shit right.
Actually, I like the way they developed Shadowrun. The first one was a good base - I've liked the story, even if it was generic, I've loved the graphics, combat was OK. I've never had a problem with save games.

The important fact is the first game allowed them to further develop and expand the game. I think this is what matters - to have a stable platform they could improve (not build another one from scratch) and spend most of their resources on content.

If they want to develop another campaign through Kickstarter I will definitely back the project.
