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:

Pretty much! Not that it matters any more, as I seriously doubt I'll play it when it arrives...they had their chance and blew it.

So their base technology is complete, and the chapters and gameplay features are at grey-box or better, but pathfinding logic, animation, combat logic, fight AI, and mission systems are still not done...

*shakes head*

At this point he should really start selling a $10,000 space bridge for the game... because I'm sure there will be some idiots gullible enough to buy it.

Why? Is that a "there's no way it will be good enough to waste my time on it" statement or a "I've followed the development of this too closely to play it unless it's the best game ever made" kind of statement?

Often I see people turned off of games they followed closely, because they followed closely. Personally, the best course seems to be just not following development closely.

Oversaturation. There is are many excrements in this sea, that its eco system has already collapsed and is overgrown with algae. We are far beyond critical mass.

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".

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.

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.

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.
