Yes Pinback, it’s certainly come a long way from that kickstarter back in 2012. It looks like it will have a release date sometime around 2020 or 2021. Heck of a long time in development. Played the latest build too but it still has many bugs. Maybe 2020 is too optimistic?
This doesn’t even talk about the 46mil in private funding that CIG just received for a 10% stake in the company. In a way it is kind of concerning that CIG needed even more funding for this game. Star Citizen is definitely in a feature creep blackhole and it is insane to think about that we are kicking around 2020-2021 as possible beta release date that is 8-9yrs after the kickstarter.
I am actually worried, I recently tried to play the game and I couldn’t even get in my 300i cockpit (its a bug)…. but this ship has been in the game since the beginning…. how could this happen, I haven’t even tried what is it 3.4.x yet. SC doesn’t even look like it can release in a quality state by 2021 there is just too much to tweak and solidify.
Personally I have been looking very forward to Squadron 42 and hope to see this one soon.
