When VR got its Series A funding, they announced it. They even issued a press release:https://www.pantheonmmo.com/content/forums/topic/5934/series-a-funding-for-pantheon-is-now-complete
Same with the Angel Investor:https://venturebeat.com/2015/09/28/everquest-creator-raises-seed-round-to-build-pantheon-rise-of-the-fallen/
But I haven't seen anything lately about a new funding round, as ostensibly we draw nearer to closed beta.
To the contrary, I see people raising the issue and VR saying that they don't discuss funding.
I mention this not to be a naysayer or a critic. I still fully support the game. I'm just concerned about whether or not they are going to have the funds needed to complete this very ambitious undertaking.
EQ1, EQ2, SWG, SWTOR, GW, GW2 CoH, CoV, FFXI, WoW, CO, War,TSW and a slew of free trials and beta tests
