It was certainly crowd funded in some way. A publisher like Ubisoft, for example, would be difficult to persuade to do a big 3D platformer like that these days. It seems it either has to be a huge bro-shooter type thing or a small, 2d Rayman title.

The middle ground has been cut out of the publisher model to some extent.

Why bother with something that might sell a couple million copies, when you can do a big, open world online shooter with DLC, pay to win and devious reward schedule oriented design that have gamers addicted like pavlovian dogs? The big publishers wanna print money. Not make good games. It happens that they do, but it's like a happy accident.

I think crowd funding promises a brighter future.
