Star Citizen funding has now hit $48 million, according to Cloud Imperium boss Chris Roberts who also announced a $50 million stretch goal.

The latest milestone was met due to sales of the the Gladius and Dogtag sales, which means the team can now create the user-voted Retaliator commercial, which David Haddock has started scripting.

The $50 million stretch goal “will truly improve the immersion” by adding Alien Languages, which will have real-world linguists creating “distinctive and realistic alien languages for Star Citizen’s three biggest alien races.”

These are the Vanduul, the Xi’An and the Banu.

“No universal translators, no garbled animal noises: Star Citizen’s aliens will be speaking their own authentic languages,” reads the post from Roberts. “I’m excited about this one… and looking forward to meeting the first fan who learns to speak one of our languages.”

Star Citizen is expected on PC in 2015.
