Star Citizen Becomes Two Games Next Month

Part of the Roberts Space Industries Roundup we mentioned last night includes word that as of February 14th, Squadron 42 and Star Citizen will become two separate packages (thanks Cutter). At that time Squadron 42 will become a standalone game or an optional add on for Star Citizen, a plan that's apparently old news to backers of the space combat game(s). Here's word:
At the December livestream, we announced that Squadron 42 and Star Citizen will be split into two separate packages in the near future. To update on this: the split will occur on February 14th. Squadron 42 will be available as either a stand alone game or an optional addon for Star Citizen rather than be included by default. If you want to lock in both games for the lowest possible price, consider pledging before this deadline. You can learn more about Squadron 42, our thrilling single-player adventure, here.

Here's why RSI is really doing this...
https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/08703814

They were suppose to file their accounts and annual review (basically taxes) with the UK Government by 31 December 2015 which is somehow delayed until 31 December 2016. By UK law they HAVE to report something. Since Foundry 42 is part of CIG the annual report is going to contain some information pertaining to CIG. They want to get SQ42 done BEFORE that date so that they can dissolved Foundry 42 and bring bug fixes and patching into the main Santa Monica office. Once dissolved they likely will not need to file an annual review. In principle they can hide their financial health and keep fooling backers with this pipe dream.

BTW Once Squadron 42 is released CIG doesn't have to finish Star Citizen. They could pull a Spacebase DF-9. See if DF-9's cancelled development sounds like Star Citizen.
