Star Citizen’s fortunes continue to grow. After crossing a crowd-funding goal of $74 million and being well on its way to reaching $75 million, Todd Papy has announced that he’s joined Cloud Imperium Games to work on the online space sim/first person title. Papy originally worked on God of War: Ascension at SCE Santa Monica before leaving in 2013 to work at Crytek.
Papy announced the news on Twitter and revealed that he will be working as design director. “Got a new job, excited to be part of a great team and working on Star Citizen.”
The scope of Star Citizen is tough to measure at this point. All additional funds are currently being allocated to expand its scale and creator Chris Roberts hopes to see the overall crowd-funding budget hit $100 million when it’s all said and done.
