Star Citizen adds $2 million in one week
Crowdfunding campaign for Chris Roberts' new PC space sim showing no signs of slowing down.
Star Citizen, the upcoming PC space sim from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts, is showing no signs of slowing down. Over the weekend, the game hit $57 and $58 million, which is up from the $56 million mark reached a week ago today. Funding currently stands at $58.3 million.
In a statement on the game's website, Roberts wrote that reaching $58 million means that developer Cloud Imperium Games can "continue to support and expand Star Citizen."
The $57 million and $58 million milestones were reached on the same weekend that Cloud Imperium Games held the second annual CitizenCon, a one-day community celebration of all-things Star Citizen in Los Angeles. The developer even showed off planetside gameplay for the first time during the show.
