Roberts: We Won't Sell Star Citizen

A new episode of 10 for the Chairman on the Roberts Space Industries website answers further questions about development of Star Citizen, RSI's upcoming space combat remake. Also, there's more to the $41 Million funding announcement that we noted last night where Chris explains that they have no intention of selling out to a bigger company and disappointing their backers like some crowd-funded projects have:

Now to answer the myriad forum threads that popped up worrying about the possibility of Cloud Imperium being acquired by another, bigger company Ė donít worry! We have no plans nor interest in following this path! We donít need to go to anyone with deep pockets to make OUR dream a reality. To mass-produce hardware like the Rift, you need an outlay of hundreds of millions of dollars. Luckily our ships are digital so we have hardly any cost of goods, just the cost of developing the universe of Star Citizen and running servers that Star Citizenís universe will be simulated on. Thanks to the generosity of the Star Citizen community we have these two things covered

And last but not least Iím having way to much fun building the universe of my dreams for everyone to adventure in! Iíve been down the big company acquisition route twice before and thereís a reason I am making Star Citizen totally independently!
