Star Citizen continues to break records before the game is even fully realized, with over $251 million in crowdfunding so far.

Star Citizen breaches $250 million crowdfunding milestone |

Chris Roberts' brainchild continues to get more backers and funding, with 2,448,963 backers at the time of writing and a huge $251,132,094 in funding so far. The last week saw a gigantic spike in funding, with gamers pouring a huge $8 million into the game this week alone.

CitizenCon 2019 was held in the last few weeks, with major updates to Star Citizen taking place in Alpha 3.7 and a tease of the new icy microTech planet, too. This is where the developers were able to tease the upcoming dynamic weather system (coming in 2020) as well as Planet Tech 4.0 (which is coming with Alpha 3.8).

Have you put any money into Star Citizen? I know a fair amount of people that have, including my brother and cousin who are (like me) long-time Chris Roberts (and thus, Wing Commander) fans.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
