Star Citizen Celebrates 2M Backers

Letter from the Chairman on the Roberts Space Industries Website celebrates Star Citizen backing the two-million backer threshold. As of this writing, the game now boasts 2,024,055 backers who have now contributed $183,398,113 USD to the space game crowdfunding project, and they are offering special badges and in-game t-shirts to help players celebrate when they joined the cult. Cloud Imperium also offers an updated roadmap with a look at release plans for the rest of the year, which starts with a lengthy list of caveats about how inaccurate these may possibly be. Spoiler alert: None of this covers plans for Star Citizen or Squadron 42 to leave the alpha stage yet. Here's a bit:

As Star Citizen has continued to grow over the years, so has the community in just as many astonishing and encouraging ways. The backers remain the foundation of this project and a beacon to the entire gaming industry and beyond. You are proving that PC games, space sims, and a willingness to push these artforms into new realms of innovation are alive and well, with more exciting possibilities than ever before. With two million people (and counting) inspiring and counting on us, the Star Citizen team is more galvanized than ever in our efforts. We’re listening to what you want out of Star Citizen and working to get more amazing content and mechanics into the game, while also pouring resources and focus into quality of life improvements and polishing current features, to make it a satisfying experience, even while still in Alpha. It’s your belief in the project, from the earliest backers to those relatively new to the ‘verse, that make it all possible.
