Star Citizen Squadron 42 Delayed

The Squadron 42 campaign for Star Citizen is delayed until 2017, reports Kotaku UK, saying the news was revealed during a livestream from CitizenCon. The first chapter of the single-player side of the space simulator was most recently supposed to come to backers this year, but this news confirms rumors of a delay that surfaced last month. On the bright side, Eurogamer notes that Cloud Imperium Games released a new video showing off how planets will be procedurally generated in the game, along with other tidbits, including a sandworm, though they don't specify whether this is showing us Beetleguise or Dune. Back to the delay, the Kotaku UK story offers two slides with details on the state of the project, and here is what those say:

LOL, they made DS the pilot of that Constellation.

You do have to admit, the technology is impressive. But it's just an engine.

Oh, is that all they have left to do? Q1 2017!

The key is to specify a month or season, but never an actual year...


Release: as early as New Year's Day
Year: not specified

The delays don't bother me. I've stopped updating my client months ago since it goes against my DL caps (I just love canada) and I usually only play for a few minutes.

As long as their funding can see this thing through to the end, I'm fine with delays. I only spent $35, so my expectations are for what I would get out of any $35 purchase- about 35 hours of enjoyment. Anyway, didn't they just recently scrap a good portion of Squadron 42 for some technical reason?

CIG was preparing to show a complete mission from Squadron 42 but pulled it before the presentation due to it not living up to their expectations. Not only that but they didn't even commit to a 2017 release. However, we will be seeing the footage soon - possibly by the end of the year. People can then judge the game for themselves. The technology they had on show for Star Citizen 3.0 was very impressive but the community reaction to CitizenCon overall was that of disappointment.

CIG really needs to improve the way the communicate delays with the community, as releasing a $900 concept sale and having a segment on ship sales just before they announce they won't be showing the footage mentioned just a few weeks ago didn't sit well.

I have full confidence that the game itself will be great but I don't have any confidence that it will be released any time soon. For me the features they've added along the way, like procedural planets, will more than make up for the delay.

A delay should not surprise anyone that is following this project. I hope when it's released that it lives up to half of its goals.

CIG is trying to pull THIS off in an MMO? With thousands of players in the same universe? No way. No. way. I want to be wrong about that but I am not.

I hope this is not some deranged poly-morphed game into an MMO. that is not what I originally signed up for when I funded this game. I wanted to have total control over my setting up my own server and playing with whomever I wanted to Coop. That is what myself and a few of my fiends all signed up for and what we were led to believe. I dont want to deal with assholes in a PVP environment.

If I wanted some Bullshit PVP space fairing game I would have signed up for EVE.

Ahahahahahaha! Let the rationalizations begin!

I love how every update always comes with a couple of dozen new virtual items for people to buy to keep feeding the Ponzi scheme er, project.

Gee, another space game with huge empty planets with nothing to do, that's original!

And people just wanted a new Wing Commander game.

At least Smart has shipped a game

I would rather wait for one than spend money on a broken one.

I have some of the universal combat games... they are pretty cool. Not the best graphics but you can do a lot of stuff.

None of them are "broken".
