    with 1 dollar being worth 5 in terms of development for SC vs traditional publishers (per Chris Roberts) - This is now the equivalent of  1 and a 1/4 Billion Dollar game.

    well, if they actually manage to sync all those different clients into one game some day, i will try to find out how much of the game i can actually play, without buying spaceships or whatnot for real money (and just buying "the game")

    but i guess whatever happens, this game can't be much of a failure anymore, on a finance base

    I think I saw that they raised 9m last month alone. Are people still giving them money?!?

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    @ShankTheTank You're wrong. 2.4 million have not funded this game. They are counting all those registrations from all those Free Fly Events, multiple times per year for over 7 years, regardless if they spent money.

    IMO, 2.4 million people trying a game over a 7 year period of time is not impressive. For example, how many millions registered in the first day Crimson Desert was announced? Well, it was more than SC can do in 7 years.

    What is impressive, is the amount of money they have raised and all the many ways to make even more money, than to finish an actual game.

    So my question to you is, Roberts can make $250 Billion dollars and still not release a game, how is that good for the gaming community?

    No need to ever have a cash shop, price tag on a game or sub. This game should be free for 250 million donated by the community.

    Yet it will not be. It will be a cash grab played by niche crowd. I doubt it will be played by more than 20k active people.

    No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

    As much as i hate how stupid and ridiculous the whole project is, i must give props and applaud the management of this company, for their ability to continue successfully scam people for their money..and it works

    The quickest way to make Star Citizen release is to stop buying ships.

    Well clearly that's never gonna happen....

    Perhaps it never will release?

    I just don't see what people see in this game to just keep handing over money. This game has been delayed so many times yet this seems like the only upcoming MMO that gets a free pass when delays or some other issue arises. It's insane to me.

    I think it's time to just stop covering this shit until they actually deliver a product.

    It’s clear some of the money was stolen along the way... regardless of when the game is released.
  • mcrippinsmcrippins Member RarePosts: 1,426
    I'm confused. Been playing this for the last week or so with a friend, and we've been having a good time. I understand that there's a ways to go regarding development, but technically the game is already in a playable state. There are missions to do and ships to fly, and I gotta say, it's a beautiful fkn game.

    Actually forbes has documentation of it, if I'm not mistaken they develop the game in cryengine in 2012 and then scrap everything 2016 and move it to lumberyard because cryengine is bad for multiplayer games "Looks pretty but shit for multiplayer" 4 years development money down to the toilet The closest thing for Star citizen having "diarrhea", later they get sued by crytek because when migrating they use some of the assets from cryengine, more money down the toilet. I don't think this is the end.
