Cloud Imperium Games, headed by industry veteran and Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts, has made astonishing progress with Star Citizen. The Kickstarter-funded open-ended space sim has raised almost $69 million in funding and its scope larger with each passing day. However, as Roberts put it in a recent year-end letter, there’s no traditional finish line as with most retail games.
“Star Citizen isn’t a sprint, it isn’t even a marathon. There is no final finish line the way you would have with a traditional retail game. Star Citizen is a way of life for as long as the community is engaged by it.”
Roberts also took the time to credit his team for the work done thus far, stating that,”It’s a project that is being built not just by 300 developers, but a project that is being built by hundreds of thousands of gamers that love PC games, that love space games and want to see a game made RIGHT, one that has such depth and ambition that they can see themselves happily adventuring for years to come.”
