Carmageddon: Reincarnation will now be developed for next-gen consoles as well as PC, after developer Stainless Games received a sizeable donation.

According to GamesIndustry, a further $3.5 million was given to the project by Bullfrog games founder and former EA European studios's VP Les Edgar, who is also a shareholder in Stainless.

The planned rebooting of the Carmageddon series started last year, when Stainless managed to raise $625,000 through Kickstarter for a PC version of the game. The new donation of $3.5 million will be used to boost this and thus enable the development of the title for next-gen consoles.

"We are delighted to have fully funded Carmageddon: Reincarnation without having to go outside of the collective of our own company, shareholders and fans," said Patrick Buckland, CEO of Stainless Games.

"It allows us to maintain a true independence and creative control whilst not having to compromise quality or content by budgetary constraints. For an independent, privately owned company to achieve this, is a testament to our strength and to the loyalty of our fans."
