Cloud Imperium Games is celebrating the holidays by showing off Star Citizen Alpha 2.6, where it teased a bunch of the game - except for Squadron 42, which was recently delayed from October, to 2017.

The team didn't show anything off from Squadron 42, instead there was plenty of advertising ship sales for the days leading up to Alpha 2.6, with the "all-ships" sale from the recent Anniversary stream returning, with discounts on a bunch of star-exploring ships. The first-person shooter module Star Marine had plenty to tease, but it wasn't much different to what the developer showed off last month.

Chris Roberts said in an email to backers: "After all the effort we expended for CitizenCon, we didn't want to spend additional developer time polishing intermediate solutions if it wasn't going towards the final product. A slick demo isn't that helpful if it pushes back the finished game, so we decided that the priority should be completing full systems over getting the vertical slice into a showable state".
