I'd say, stay as it is, and make the game as originally planned. As we all know there will be delays, and the extra money they get should go to cover those inevitable delays.

Once the first game is done, the engine is done, the assets are there, then the sequel can introduce extra races, classes, etc. Building on what's done.
I'm not saying they need a LOT of stretch goals but that if they want to maintain momentum they need enticing reveals of some sort. That doesn't have to be in the form of stretch goals, but could also be in the form of information about the game or greater elaboration as the kickstarter window moves along.
