A new release window hasn’t been confirmed.


Squadron 42 is Star Citizen’s single-player story campaign that’s brimming with Hollywood talent.

The campaign and the MMO aspects of the game were split back in February giving players the choice of their preferred experience without having to be lumped with additional content they had no desire to play. Of course, if you’re looking to play both, you can pick up both packages.

Squadron 42 initially had a rather vague 2016 release window, but Eurogamer reported that Cloud Imperium Games’ Chris Roberts broke the news of the delay during the Citizencon livestream.

“As much as we wanted to have Squadron 42 for this year, it’s not going to be this year,” Roberts said, explaining that most of the 28 chapters are still in their preliminary stages.

The new isn’t going to be a huge surprise to those following development, and the lack of a new release date – placeholder or otherwise – indicates there’s still a lot of work to be done.
