Star Citizen, which has been massively funded and modularly developed since 2012, has received $35 million funding in 2017. The $34.91 million support it scored is twice as much as the amount of funding ($17.25 million) for all other gaming projects that launched campaigns on the Kickstarter platform.
The game collected 36,11 million dollars in the previous year, and 2015 was a 41,5 million dollars of funding for the project.
Star Citizen, in total garnered more than $175 million of support from players to date, will provide two different games to its backers. While the Squadron 42 will be a one-man space adventure, Cloud Imperium also develop an online game that is identified with the Star Citizen brand and will be launched as a “permanent universe”.
These games, which have been developed for five years, have not yet been completed and their release dates are unknown.
