The use of Kickstarter should be for games that wouldn't otherwise be made, which is not the case here. Funcom has the resources, and LJ/DF had the numbers to support a sequel. So just DO it. Don't come out holding your hand pretending like it won't happen without free money.
Ragnar had basically been promising a sequel long before KS ever existed, but instead they went for the MMORPG cash cow (Secret World). Next thing you know, EA will start expecting KS funds to make more of their stuff… Free money is a great strategy when everyone is so willing to give, apparently. Unfortunately it's diluting the pool for those who actually NEED the funds for their work to see the light of day.
