The article is heavily misleading. "Most popular kickstarter ever" does not apply to this at all. It only went $50,000 over its goal. 

 

I also see little reason to be excited for it right now. It will take years to come out. It is pre-pre-alpha basically. It is similar to the announcement of AGENT 4 years ago at E3. The game had a premise and nothing else to show. This game has a premise and some very, very low quality footage of a level that is a placeholder for a level. 

 

Also, they hope to make a demo. A demo that they HOPE will get a publisher to publish them. 

 

All we know is the premise. It sounds awesome on paper, but we can only hope that it will come out this great (or at all)

You fail to realize how few of you care anymore. The SOCOM fans exist in much smaller quantities or have moved on. It sold a couple million copies on a console with an install base of 150 million. I would doubt that all those people that played it  10 years ago would know about, or care enough about, a SOCOM "remake" (it would be more of a spiritual successor, not a remake).

 

There is a fanbase, but it is very small. An example of a fanbase not being enough is Starhawk. Warhakw sold well and has an amazing community to this day. Sadly, not enough of them bought Starhawk for it to sell well enough to keep the studio alive. And Warhawk was from 2007 and Starhawk from 2011! That is a much smaller gap!

I loved socom 2 and is probably the single game Ive sunk the most hours in, but im not about to donate money to another game with the same promise of the "real socom" that has been dangled out to fans since socom 3. I stopped buying that line hook, line, and sinker since Socom Confrontation and moved on.

 

I have no reason to believe H Hour will be any differnt than what the last socom games have turned out to be

 

Socom needs to be let go, regardless of how much fun it was because at this point, they wont be able to make the game to match the hyperbole socom 1/2 has become
