The new regional servers will let Star Citizen players choose a server that is in their geographic location, with servers for the US, Europe, and Australia. Roberts explained: "Once these are running, we'll be able to run more tests to assess whether more locations will be needed".

Star Citizen's upcoming Alpha 2.6.1 patch will bring a few things, with Roberts saying that it's "progressing nicely". He added: "There's still some UI work to complete and stability issues to iron out, but, as you can see in our updated production schedule report, we're almost ready to get this latest patch into the players' hands".
