Chris Roberts hoping for $100 million.
Star Citizen is a wonder and marvel of crowdfunding at this point. It has managed to garner over $50 million in crowdfunding money, and it shows no sign of stopping- truly this, above everything else, serves to stand as validation of Chris Roberts’ vision for a hardcore, high quality, premium PC exclusive game that is not held back or compromised by consoles.
It also helps that the game itself looks so badass. Anyway, the game is now nearing a staggering $63 million in crowdfunding. Take a minute to step back and think about that amount. $63 million. And that’s not even the end of it as the genius behind it all, Chris Roberts, has said that he is hoping to touch $100 million. Personally, going by how this game has been doing on this front, I don’t doubt its ability to reach that amount if it wanted to.
“You guys are literally setting the budget and ambition of the game with your support which in itself is a pretty amazing thing and something I never would have believed possible two years ago,” Roberts concluded.
Keep at it, man. Give us all the PC game we deserve.
Star Citizen will release on PC next year.
