This past summer, Digital Eclipse over on crowdfunding platform Republic launched a campaign for a new initiative to further fuel its endeavor to reinvigorate fan-favorite titles.
At the time, co-founder Mike Mika went to Twitter asking his users what they might believe to be the next project the team should pursue. Upon the ending of the campaign on September 16, Digital Eclipse generated roughly $10.5 million from crowdfunding.
From the Republic page, Digital Eclipse remarks on the campaign exceeding $10 million and shares its venture has already found one publisher to start work with. “We can let you know that Digital Eclipse has signed a license agreement with a very well known IP, and that the size and scope of that project will be similar to the Blizzard Arcade Collection we helped develop for Activision-Blizzard earlier this year.”
Furthermore, the post continues asking its supporters to proceed with more suggestions that they believe needs Digital Eclipse’s attention. As for anticipated projects from the firm already, the team already confirmed to be working on Disney Classic Games Collection: Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Jungle Book.
