Not to mention the huge amount of money that will come when S42 is released.
Not to particularly pick a fight or anything, but now that S42 is an episodic single player game, do you think it's going to rake cash in like never before? I mean, consoles are out, and single player games are not as hot as hot multiplayer games.
Plus, how many backers do they have now? Those are all people who are going to get the game and not actually have to pay for it. They've already front-loaded their revenue from S42 and burned through it a long time ago. You'd have to probably approach 10 million players worldwide to see boatloads of cash come in. And single player space combat sims that don't touch consoles are a niche of a niche of a niche. I would be surprised if 25% of the player base that would be down to play this & have the machine to play it still is out in the market.
