Star Citizen will be a proper grown up game very, very soon

Star Citizen will soon be more than a collection of modules and the fervent hopes of its crowdfunding backers, apparently.


Star Citizen designer Chris Roberts has said that while he and the team at Cloud Imperium games are not ready to share dates, the space sim is finally starting to come together.

“The coming months are going to be something else. Without sharing internal target dates, I will tell you that we are entering into the tightest schedule we’ve ever had for public releases,” he wrote on Roberts Space Industries.

“In short order, you will see Arena Commander 1.1 (now with REC!), the FPS module and the so-called ‘social module,’ our first foray into the persistent universe.

“We’ve talked a lot about how Star Citizen will come together from disparate pieces over the past year, and we are now entering into when that happens. I can’t express how excited I am.”

Star Citizen has been in development for so long that it has pulled together $74 million in crowdfunding, both from simple pledges and from sales of add-ons.
