Phoenix Point is in development at Snapshot Games, founded in 2013 by Gollop and industry veteran David Kaye. The studio's first game was Chaos Reborn, a sequel to Gollop's 1985 turn-based tactics game Chaos. This game was successfully funded on Kickstarter in April 2014.

Snapshot has not said yet if it plans to also launch a crowdfunding campaign for Phoenix Point. We will have more details on Phoenix Point as they are made available.
