The crowdfunding campaign for Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts' upcoming PC space sim, Star Citizen, has now surpassed $63 million. This is up from $61 million notched just two weeks ago.

To date, more than 661,000 people have backed Star Citizen. The game is the most crowdfunded project of any kind in history. Roberts is hopeful the title can reach $100 million during its lifetime.

Star Citizen's original Kickstarter campaign ended nearly two years ago, with further funding later shifting to the game's official website, where the bulk of contributions have been made.

Developer Cloud Imperium Games says Star Citizen is hoping to be the first AAA game developed with money from fans instead of a big-name publisher. It seems well on its way to achieving that goal.
