It was only in December that Matt reported that Star Citizen had raised more than $250m USD in its crowdfunding efforts. Well, fast-forward six months, and developer Cloud Imperium Games now reports that the total, at the time of writing, stands at $300,369,065 (thanks, Twinfinite). That’s almost £240 million.
In all, there are 2,712,305 “star citizens” although naturally, not all of those are paying players, particularly as Cl recently ran a free-week at the end of May 2020.
The accolade comes at the same time as Star Citizen launched Alien Week, which includes an all-new video which sees members of the narrative team answer player questions about “the lore, history and background on the alien races of Star Citizen”. You can check it out below.
