You would think by this point that Star Citizen would begin to taper off and level out in its crowdfunding limits. And you would be mistaken for believing that. It seems that the longer development goes, the more Chris Roberts’ ambitious space sim continues to rake in.
Since our report yesterday that Star Citizen had broken the $30 million mark, the game has managed to break 2 more $1 million stretch goals since then, unlocking both the RSI Orion mining platform and the Aegis Surveyor salvage ship.
With both those goals down and funding already 28% of the way to $33 million and the unlocking of the Anvil Carrack exploration ship, Star Citizen doesn’t seem to be losing any speed, which is impressive given that it’s still so early in development and still so far from launch. Perhaps some of these publishers churning out yearly cookie cutter games should take note on how welcome original ideas can be.
The rapid pace of funding seems to be outpacing the chairman's updates, so you can read the $31 Million Letter from the Chairman for now. I expect the next will be forthcoming soon enough.
