Star Citizen Hits $41M - Procedural Generation Plans

A new Letter from the Chairman on the Roberts Space Industries celebrates the latest milestone for Star Citizen, as the upcoming space combat game has passed $41 million in crowd-sourced funding (thanks 88fingers). This triggers the previously announced stretch goal of procedural generation technology. Here's word:

We’ve hit another record-setting crowd funding level: $41 million!

I’m incredibly happy to hit this goal as it green-lights a very important research project aimed at improving Star Citizen’s long term future. With this funding, we’ll be looking into procedural generation to help build the universe out in a greater detail and scope in ways we didn’t think possible when we started developing the game! We will have some exciting announcements to make down the line involving some of the talent we’ve been talking to about helping us with procedural system and planet building.

  • Procedural Generation R&D Team – This stretch goal will allocate funding for Cloud Imperium to develop procedural generation technology for future iterations of Star Citizen. Advanced procedural generation will be necessary for creating entire planets worth of exploration and development content. A special strike team of procedural generation-oriented developers will be assembled to make this technology a reality.
