In an update to the project's Kickstarter page, the company thanked fans and partners for their support and said it will "pursue other avenues" to bring the Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem spiritual successor to market.

"It is unfortunate that we were unable to crowd-fund this project at this time, but we have not given up," Precursor Games said in a statement. "We intend to pursue other avenues with the ultimate goal of having our games come to fruition."

The campaign concluded this weekend at $323,950, less than half of its $750,000 goal. A total of 5,932 people backed the project.

The game's Kickstarter campaign was relaunched on July 25 and featured a commitment from Metal Gear Solid voice actor David Hayter to play the lead role of detective Paul Becker.

The game's initial Kickstarter campaign was suspended in June over "new and exciting opportunities," according to developer Precursor Games.

Shadow of the Eternals was scheduled to launch by October 2014 on PC and Wii U. For more, check out GameSpot's interview with Precursor Games founder Denis Dyack.
