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.
