The game's current funding stands at $74.9 million, and at the pace it's been rising of late, it could cross $75 million by later today. This is up from$74 million less than two weeks ago. More than 794,000 people have backed the campaign to date.

Star Citizen is already the most successful crowdfunded project, of any kind, in history. All additional funds raised for Star Citizen will towards expanding the scope of the game.

If funding continues at this pace, the game could eventually raise $100 million as Roberts hoped it would. Just recently, Roberts said, "I don't think we're close to the addressable market" in terms of how much room the game still had to grow.
