Star Citizen Reaches $76 Million
The upcoming PC space sim from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts hits yet another funding milestone.
Star Citizen, the upcoming crowdfunded PC "first-person universe" game from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts and his new studio Cloud Imperium Games, has surpassed yet another funding milestone.
The game has now crossed $76 million in total funding, up from $75 million just two weeks ago. More than 850,000 people have backed the project to date.
Star Citizen is already said to be the most successful crowdfunded project, of any kind, in history. All additional funds raised for Star Citizen will go towards expanding the scope of the game.
Roberts previously predicted that Star Citizen would eventually reach $100 million. If funding continues at the pace of around $1 million every two weeks, the game will hit that mark before the end of the year. 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.
