A post on the Roberts Space Industries Website
announces that Star Citizen
has attracted more than $4 million in funding from fans eager for a new space combat game from the creator of Wing Commander. The post outlines additional stretch goals beyond that point, and a follow-up
announces another system is unlocked, and says they now have stretch goals all the way to the $5 million mark. Finally, the latest update
announces that having passed $4.2 million, they have climbed to the top of the crowd-sourcing mountain:
$4.2 million! Which means that Star Citizen is now the highest crowd-funded game project ever! You’ve earned this star system, and a lot more! Let’s go for $4.5! By the way: you guys are now unlocking systems faster than our artists can finish them… we promise we’ll add the missing concepts in the near future.
