The project has been in development for nearly a decade.
Although it is known by many that today Not all video games have big publishers behind thembeing necessary that some projects must be financed through donations, there are some cases in which collection expectations fall short with reality, being that the case of Star Citizen is being one of the most striking in the video game industry.
And this is due not only because the Cloud Imperium Games title has a decade behind in its development, but a new milestone has recently been achieved with Chris Roberts’ space simulator which seems to it will never go out at this ratewhich has not discouraged fans in the least from continuing to contribute their money to the project.
Star Citizen achieves a milestone, but also that its sponsors get tired of waiting
Under this premise, it has recently been possible to know that Star Citizen has exceeded 500 million dollars in crowdfunding, thus becoming one of the games with the highest collection campaign in history. However, this is not exempting it from some controversy, since after seeing how the developers have denied that it is a pay to win, it has been possible to see how more and more voices are criticize the management of the project in its development.
This is something that goes hand in hand also with the fact that Star Citizen does not leave its alpha phase, being accessible to the sponsors of the title, but without becoming a complete game and still a long way from achieving it. Of course, we will have to wait to see what its performance is in the coming years, since games like Starfield or the revamped No Man’s Sky could make it outdated Sooner than later.
For the rest, it should be noted that, in the absence of knowing if it will be released in full at some point, Star Citizen is in development for PCalso being a mystery if it will reach other platforms in the future.
