Star Citizen breaches $35 million in crowdfunding

Star Citizen continues its crowdfunding haul, passes $35 million

Star Citizen has passed over $35 million in crowdfunding, with the new stretch goal sitting at the easily-reachable $36 million. Considering we saw $33 million raised at the end of November, we're seeing millions pour into Roberts Space Industries' coffers.

Chris Roberts, the brain behind Star Citizen, said: "Wow! When I started this journey I would have never guessed that we would have come so far in such a short time. $35M in funds raised to build Star Citizen before the end 2013 it truly a monumental achievement! You're not just re-writing the rules of how games are made and funded but you're showing the power that a committed community has to achieve a vision that so many people said was no longer relevant. You've broken every record there is in crowd funding - and not just for games - for any type of project!"

 

I'm beginning to feel like this game won't be anywhere near complete in time, considering the scope of the game - especially with the Dogfighting Module expected this month, but delayed for months. The game does scale well at 7680x1440, something we tested with some Radeon HD 7970s in CrossFire.
