A few years back, we were all discussing the frankly dizzying amounts of money going into crowdfunding MMOs. Speculation ran rampant that this was the new model for developing games. And yet now, between titles like Greed Monger folding early in the development process, titles like Pathfinder Online facing an uncertain future, and other titles cancelling partway through their Kickstarter campaigns… suddenly the future of crowdfunding seems far less bright.
So what do you think? Are you looking at all of the MMOs that are out or on the horizon and still thinking that that crowdfunding is going to be the way of the future for video games? Do you think that the failures are part of the growing pains of the model? Or do you think that this is an inevitable consequence of crowdfunding?
