Earlier today, Skydance excitingly teased fans with Terminator 6 news. They posted an image of James Cameron on their social media pages along with the following comment: “Something big is coming. #Terminator”. Now to most Terminator fans, exactly what this T6 related big announcement Skydance will be making remains a mystery. However, one loyal member of our Terminator Army feels he may have just “cracked the code” and figured out what Skydance’s big reveal will be!
With sadness we must report that the gaming company Rule & Make has pulled the plug on their Kickstarter project T2029 an official “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” board game. While support was robust in the beginning, it seems the gaming company felt they were not going to achieve 100% funding in the allotted time to get this exciting Terminator tabletop game made.
While Terminator first began its legendary infiltration into comics during the late 1980’s when it was published by NOW Comics, many fans fondly remember when Dark Horse Comics took over in 1990 with their “Tempest” four issue limited run, followed by the single issue “One Shot” released in 1991. Both stories have since been presented in hardcover collections, which are no longer in print and fans had to resort to purchasing used copies on the secondary market… until today!
A couple of weeks ago, the gaming company Rule & Make launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund T2029, an official “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” board game! Already an accomplished board game publisher with eight successful tabletop game Kickstarter campaigns, Rule & Make hopes to make their new T2 official board game number nine in their streak of success! With 65% of their project already funded, T2029’s game and graphic design guru Ian O’Toole was nice enough to sit down with us and answer a few of our questions. Here is how it went:
While Terminator fans eagerly await for Skydance & Paramount to officially announce their production schedule and release date for Terminator 6, our e-mail inbox has recently received some interesting informational tidbits about the next anticipated installment in our favorite franchise! With some of this information received being verified news, and some of it being unsubstantiated rumors, it would be a dereliction of our duties not to report everything we have learned to our Army… especially when fans are hungering for new information about T6!
And the Terminator fans from the United Kingdom originally thought Americans were the lucky ones! Originally planned as a single one day theatrical showing, when Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D blew away the August competition in the UK to take the #1 box-office spot on Judgment Day, August 29th (as reported HERE), things had suddenly changed.
Most Terminator fans know that James Cameron originally intended a different ending for Terminator 2: Judgment Day, referred to as the future coda. This original filmed conclusion shows a brighter future thanks to the T-800 Model 101, featuring an old Sarah Connor reflecting about a Judgment Day that never occurred, and her son John Connor fighting a different fight now, as a U.S. Senator.
First there was “The Terminator” official board game launch, now a different company has announced a tabletop game for “Terminator 2”! That’s right, the good people at Rule & Make informed us this morning they have secured a Worldwide Exclusive License for T2’s tabletop gaming rights, and will launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund it this September. They call the game: T2029.
The promotional hype continues for the 3D remastered re-release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day! And this time it’s the debut of five brand new interviews with James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert Patrick, William Wisher Jr. and visual effects supervisor Dennis Muren!
