Phoenix Point, the successor of X-COM, fully funded

Now the crowdfunding campaign will focus on achieving further stretch goals.

Just a few days ago we informed you that Julian Gollop, the creator of the original X-COM, and the team at Snapshot Games started the crowdfunding campaign for Phoenix Point. Now we have some good news: the game is already fully funded!

The initial goal of the developers was to get $500,000 for the game’s development. The money was gathered through pledges in less than a week with 36 days more for further campaign. Snapshot Games revealed two stretch goals. When the crowdfunding reaches $650k, driveable vehicles will be added to the battlefield.

If Fig users manage to pledge $850k, a Floating Phoenix Base will be added. This one allows players to travel by sea and conduct air operations, but comes with an additional risk of fights with seaborn mutants. When these stretch goals are achieved, further milestones will be revealed. Phoenix Point is expected to release at the end of 2018.
