Carmageddon: Reincarnation Coming to Next-Gen Consoles

Stainless Games has announced its successful accumulation of $3.5 million of funding which will be used in the development of the upcoming vehicular combat game Carmageddon: Reincarnation for PC and next-gen consoles.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2012, the remaining funding required by Stainless Games has been provided by Les Edgar, founder of Bullfrog Productions and former VP of EA’s European Studios, and a shareholder in Stainless Games.

“We are delighted to have fully funded CARMAGEDDON: REINCARNATION without having to go outside of the collective of our own company, shareholders and fans,” said Patrick Buckland, CEO and co-founder of Stainless Games, in a press release. “It allows us to maintain a true independence and creative control whilst not having to compromise quality or content by budgetary constraints.”

Carmageddon: Reincarnation is apparently set to “re-engage the millions of players who enjoyed the previous versions for their excellent gameplay and irreverent humour; introduce a whole new generation of gamers to the legendary brand; and reinforce Stainless Games’ position as a strong independent developer.”

An iOS version of the original Carmageddon – first released in 1997 and censored or banned in a number of countries at the time – was released on iPhone and iPad last year, while a re-release on Android devices is currently pending.
