Carmageddon: Reincarnation developer Stainless Games is taking its next instalment in the brutal racing franchise next-gen, thanks to a sizeable $3.5 million investment from Bullfrog founder Les Edgar. reports that Edgar’s contribution sits on top of the $625,000 earned through the Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter campaign last year.

Reacting to the news, CEO of Stainless Games Patrick Buckland said, “We are delighted to have fully funded Carmageddon: Reincarnation without having to go outside of the collective of our own company, shareholders and fans.

“It allows us to maintain a true independence and creative control whilst not having to compromise quality or content by budgetary constraints. For an independent, privately owned company to achieve this, is a testament to our strength and to the loyalty of our fans.”

Edgar also explained his contribution “I have always had a great belief in Stainless, and I really admire their continued success as one of the leading indie dev studios. The Carmageddon name is one we all want to see rise again, and I know that in the hands of its original creators, we’re bound to get the best out of the brand.”
