On its way to $75 million.
Chris Roberts, creator of Star Citizen and founder of Cloud Imperium Games, probably didn’t think that his online space-sim/open sandbox universe/first person shooter would have reached this far in terms of crowd-funding. However, it’s been more than two and a half years later, the space sim has amassed more than $74 million in funding and its halfway through $75 million.
Thus far, more than 767,718 people have contributed towards the game making it the most successful crowd-funding project in history. That includes just about every single form of media from movies to video games. As of now, Cloud Imperium is working towards expanding the overall game with the additional funds – in fact, season one of the single-player campaign will be debuting this fall while the commercial release will be next year.
