Star Citizen Passes $200M

The Stretch Goals page on the Roberts Space Industries website shows that fundraising for Star Citizen and Squadron 42 has now passed the $200 million dollar mark (thanks Eurogamer). The exact figures as of this writing are $200,012,699 in funding from 2,121,295 contributors, a remarkable $94.29 each. This campaign launched in 2012 to fund a game expected in 2014, but the endless support from backers has lead to the protracted development of two games that currently remain in the alpha stage. This feature creep has inspired vocal criticism, but as this new milestone demonstrates, many Star Citizens remain loyal to the project. According to Wikipedia this is the fourth-highest sum ever raised through crowdfunding. More striking is how that list of crowdfunding successes is dominated by speculative blockchain projects. Star Citizen has actually raised one thousand percent more capital than the second game on that list, the $19 million locked up by Prison Architect.
