1.1 million for making a game was ridiculously low. Dont be fooled it doesnt cost 200k to make a player house, im pretty sure most of the excess money will go into the base game since most of the time things dont go conforming to plan. Shit and delays happen and having some extra money for extensive bug testing and keeping the game more in production if needed is always good.
And stop complaining about multiplayer, baldurs gate, icewind dale and neverwinter nights all had multiplayer(albeit they were D&D games so the option of dungeon crawling, rping, w/e with others was pretty much a must). I personally dont care about multiplayer for such a game, im just sick of reading about this highhorse attitude where multiplayer is looked as a cash and noob magnet.
