Release date - your best guess?

Lets see who can make the most accurate prediction regarding Star Citizen release date. By release, I do not mean early access or beta or anything like that, but a standard release.

If you want to play, try to avoid unrealistic predictions and really go with your best estimate. If you believe the game will not be released, saying so counts as a valid guess, whereas stuff like “when its ready” does not. 

I will go first.

    I predict this game will continue to milk donations and make faux progress for another 5-6 years. Then it will sell off to some company like Daybreak, who will rush it to something they call "complete" and release.

    My alternative guess is never 

    EQ1, EQ2, SWG, SWTOR, GW, GW2 CoH, CoV, FFXI, WoW, CO, War,TSW and a slew of free trials and beta tests

    Why ever release when dip$hits continually throw money at you?

    If the day ever comes when the backer funding comes to halt, expect it to release within 3 to 6 months.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    'This does not apply just to ED but SC or any other game. What they will get is Rebirth/X4, likely prettier but equally underwhelming and pointless. 

    It is incredibly difficult to design some meaningfull leg content that would fit a space ship game - simply because it is not a leg game.

    It is just huge resource waste....'

    The business model for star citizen is pay to develop. Why break something that works ?

    Other then saying at the start the game would release in about 5 years. Have they given another release date? Its a solid question of when. I think the backers deserve to have an idea. Even a timeline of what stages of Alpha and Beta they are in, have they even given that?

    My guess is Pantheon will launch under the next 24 months. Could be wrong. SC on the other hand, I dont think they have any desire to release their game. My guess is they will look at a launch window when people stop handing them money for development and that does not seem to stop. Their business model is working for them, why release?

    The release date for Star Citizen has to be one of the biggest ongoing jokes in all of gaming at this point.

    Yeah gonna vote never here as well.

    Why would you when you make money not releasing?
