There have been a lot of 4X games set in space lately, from Stellaris to the Master of Orion reboot. Some of them have been good! None, however, have been as good as Endless Space 2.
Video: Harmonix’s Amplitude revival finally has a release date: January 5. Backers at the $US40 ($55) or higher tier will gain access a little earlier, however, on December 23.
Maybe it’s scepticism. Maybe it’s Kickstarter malaise. Maybe people just don’t care.
