Another year begins and the cash keeps on coming from backers.
Overnight the Star Citizen funding bar shot over the $69 million mark which is not a bad way to start the new year for Cloud Imperium. The game has raised a further 3 million in the past month which is not to be sniffed at.
There is no indication of new features being added with this new goal having been reached which is to be expected based on previous comments from Chris Roberts.
2015 is going to be a big year for the game with the rolling out of the Persistent Universe and the the single player Squadron 42 campaign. Let’s not forget the FPS module which will be an interesting addition to the whole package.
There’s no doubt that the game will hit that $100 million mark at some point, it may even make it this year, but a lot depends on the success of these so far un-released features and modes. They still have a lot of work to do in the next few months to get these out the door.
Chris Roberts is confident that they will deliver with Star Citizen having already said he can’t see the game “flopping”. It’s this level of confidence that will keep backer enthused.
