Hidden Path announces Defense Grid 2.

After its Kickstarter funding drive for a Defense Grid expansion pack barely scraped over the line last year, the prospect of a full sequel seemed rather remote. After all, a full Defense Grid 2 was offered to the expansion’s Kickstarter followers as a ‘stretch goal’, but fell almost $750k short of the mark. End of story? Not quite.
Hidden Path Entertainment today revealed that its dream project is very much alive and well. In a press statement as magnanimous as it was shrewd, the studio attributed its funding triumph to its fans. “The excitement, involvement, and passion that the community displayed around Defense Grid directly helped us engage an investment partner and make DG2 a reality.”
The sci-fi tower defence sequel will feature new towers and enemies, as well as adversarial and cooperative multiplayer. User generated content will also play a part.
Hidden Path is aiming to release Defense Grid 2 in the first half of 2014.
