Surely they made enough money from the first game to fund it themselves? I mean they must have considering they're releasing it on consoles. Hmm.

Well you got to pay your staff and monthly operating costs.

They're probably using a fair amount of that to create and publish the Enhanced Edition of Original Sin. Publishing on consoles is a lot more expensive than on Steam even with the latter taking a 20% cut from each sale (or something like that).

Either way, this seems fairly reasonable. Those who want it will back it, and those who don't will not.

Steam takes 30% if you're an indie dev that's a huge deal. The publisher will take a lot more than that.
