Earlier this year, many developers from the original team behind “Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem” (GameCube) announced their desire to resurrect the game with a spiritual successor called, “Shadow of the Eternals,” for Wii U. Their Kickstarter campaign, however, did not meet its goal, and there has been some controversy surrounding one of their (now previous) employees, Ken McCulloh. On Friday, Precursor Games’ chief creative officer, Denis Dyack went to their forums to say the project is officially on hold, saying, “We feel it needs a rest.” Here is the rest of what he had to say:

It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to put the Shadow of the Eternals project on hold. We are very happy with what we have accomplished both as a group and with the community. The community has blown us away and was the one thing that kept us going through it all – we cannot thank you enough.

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. Although we did not succeed on doing this, we succeeded in making many friends and starting something that we hope provided value for those involved. We have no regrets.

Denis, Phil and Aaron have decided to continue to run the forums for those who wish to stay hang out and talk. Denis, Phil and Aaron will also be taking a break but will be around posting and talking with everyone when they can. Others from Precursor will also be popping in from time to time.

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.

Keep your head high everyone and remember what we have accomplished together.

– The Precursor Games Team

    That’s a bummer – I loved the GameCube title, but it sounds like there has been a lot of behind the scenes shenanigans and problems for these guys.
