Following two unsuccessful crowdfunding ventures to finance its proposed title Shadow of the Eternals, Precursor Games' Denis Dyack announced on Friday that development had been suspended and that its studio will be "taking a break." "It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to put the Shadow of the Eternals project on hold," Dyack wrote on Precursor's forums. "Many of us will be taking a break. For those who are not aware, we all worked on this project as a labor of love and self financed 100% of everything for a over a year to try to make Shadow of the Eternals a reality." Intended as a spiritual successor to Denis Dyack's and Silicon Knights' Eternal Darkness, the Shadow of the Eternals project has faced a number of setbacks and minor controversies, ending with Precursor cancelling its most recent Kickstarter in late August. "Although we did not succeed [in our crowdfunding goals], we succeeded in making many friends and starting something that we hope provided value for those involved," Dyack continued in his forum post. "Is the project dead? No, but we feel it needs a rest too. We have all agreed as a group that when and if the time is right we will get together and start it up again."
