Star Citizen crowdfunding tops $38 million

Star Citizen backers have now poured $38 million into Cloud Imperium Games’ coffers to help bring the sci-fi sandbox simulation to market.

The milestone was celebrated, as usual, with a letter from the chairman on Roberts Space Industries.

The latest million unlocks the Cano, Oretani, and Kabal systems. When – there’s really no if anymore – funding hits $39 million, the developer intends to announce a mysterious new goal, presumably at $40 million, that will “help chart the course for the future of Star Citizen in a different way”. Well, well.

Star Citizen is expected on PC in 2015.

To-do list this afternoon: eat a lot of ice cream, write a script that generates a new Star Citizen milestone headline once a week.

Thanks, Gamespot.
