Here’s some excellent news for fans of Stronghold Crusader. In an announcement made today, Firefly Studios has revealed that they will be releasing a follow-up aptly titled Stronghold Crusader 2 “late 2013″. The Stronghold series has sold a combined six million copies, so it’s not surprising to see another title in the series announced, here’s hoping the game meets the fans expectations.
According to Simon Bradbury, CEO and designer at Firefly, they are doing their best to make sure the game doesn’t disappoint.
“Stronghold Crusader is our favorite game, it’s our fans’ favorite game and it’s the game we have been waiting to put into production for several long years now. Now Firefly Studios finally has that chance and we will not disappoint,” said Bradbury.
They will be reportedly funding the game independently and looking for additional additional funds through crowd sourcing site Gambitious.
“Crowd funding is a revolution for small, independent developers like ourselves and through Gambitious we hope to supplement the development of Stronghold Crusader 2,” said Eric Oullette, President of Firely . “With the support of our fans we can release Stronghold Crusader 2 when it’s absolutely perfect and push the game to new heights.”
