Rainbow Six Kickstarter campaign faces backlash after requesting more funding from backers
A Kickstarter campaign for a Rainbow Six Siege-themed board game has caused controversy after requesting additional funding from its backers, even though the project has already surpassed its initial funding goal by more than 400%.
The project, titled "Rainbow Six Siege – The Board Game," was launched by Mythic Games in October 2021 with an initial funding goal of $100,000. As of November 2021, the campaign has raised more than $420,000 from nearly 3,000 backers.
However, in a recent update on the campaign's Kickstarter page, Mythic Games announced that it would be requesting additional funding from backers in order to improve the quality of the game's components, including the cardboard tiles and plastic miniatures.
The update was met with criticism from many backers, who felt that the additional funding request was unnecessary given that the project had already far exceeded its initial funding goal.
Mythic Games defended the decision, stating that the additional funding would allow them to create a better product for their backers.
The controversy surrounding the Rainbow Six Siege board game Kickstarter campaign highlights the potential risks and challenges associated with crowdfunding projects. Backers are often asked to contribute funds to projects that are still in development, with no guarantee that the final product will meet their expectations.
