The Star Citizen 3.0 update has been in testing for a number of weeks with the Evocati testing group and there has been no indication when it would go out the PTU.
A rough window has been revealed by CIG in the latest Chairman’s Club News newsletter where they state that PTU testing is likely to begin before 20 December.
When the PTU finally goes live we’ll have a much better idea of 3.0’s performance and how far along they are with bringing all this together. CIG has been under a lot of pressure to get 3.0 out by the end of 2017 but getting all backers playing it by January 2018 could be tough with the holiday period looming.
After watching the CitizenCon event, and seeing snippets of action from 3.0 that have leaked out, we’re not holding out too much hope for something that will blow our socks off. This is Star Citizen after all and deadlines are constantly missed so does it really matter if 3.0 makes a 2017 release or a December 2018 release?
