Updated Elite game reaches its kickstarter target

photo-fullElite Dangerous, the fourth sequel and update of the classic 80’s game Elite has now reached its kickstarter fund target of £1.25m just 48 hours ahead of its Friday deadline.

David Braben one of the co-writers of the original game started the kickstarter  request with the new game being development by his game studio Frontier Developments. Some work has already started on the game with it initially being referred to as Elite 4 before the name change and the additional money raised will be used to complete it. Braben has said that he chose the kickstarter option over going to a publisher so that he and his studio can maintain complete control over the games development.

The new game has been given an initial release date of March 2014.
