In October CIG stated that there would be Star Citizen Squadron 42 news coming in December. It’s December now and there appears to be some movement on an update coming from CIG.
While CIG continues to polish up Star Citizen 3.0 as best they can, Squadron 42 is supposed to be the focus of their Holiday Live Stream. This evening they also announced that an “inaugural Squadron 42 newsletter” is coming next week.
This newsletter will be released each month and give an insight into the single-player campaign. It looks like this special Squadron 42 holiday event is happening on Thursday, 21 December at 12PM PST as part of the Holiday ATV Special.
In other news, the Star Citizen 3.0 PTU has been feature locked and we can assume a release to the masses will be happening reasonably soon. The latest production schedule is now live for this week.
This is good news for some backers who are only interested in the single-player Squadron 42 which CIG has been keeping well under wraps for a long time. It’s highly unlikely we’ll find out when it’s going to be released because many of the game’s features are shared with the PU version of the game.
Still, something is better than nothing and we can only hope that it’s further down the line in development than we suspect it actually is. If CIG gets Squadron 42 right, it could help them with funding and give backers some hope.
