Thanks again everyone! We'll start sending out for all of your information in the coming week. We have a presumed beta date range, 04/18-04/21. We'll know more as we progress.

In the meantime, check out this article written by Owen Good via Kotaku below:

"In One of the Greatest Comebacks in Sports History, Fans Fund "The Tecmo Bowl MMO"

Two days ago, the "Tecmo Bowl MMO" was left for dead, less than halfway to its funding goal on Kickstarter. Today was the deadline for the game. If it didn't raise $7,500, every cent contributed would be lost.

In a last ditch effort, Gridiron Heroes' project leader, Dave Murray, asked me, Operation Sports, and Epic Games' community manager Will Kinsler to send out a reminder tweet, two days ago. I figured why not. I wrote about it for Sportaku, and would kind of like see the idea pulled off.

This evening, after a last-minute comeback that conjures images of the Music City Miracle, the Ghost to the Post, and the Bills sundering the Oilers in 1993, Gridiron Heroes met its funding target, just $163 over the minimum. See for yourself in this chart. This is a game that will be made.

Sport's most emotional moments are often the ones manifested as allegories of real life victories. That makes it precious, indeed, when the beauty of real life echoes the triumph of sport.

Congratulations, Gridiron Heroes."


Thanks to all of you for making this possible!
