Not that anyone is expecting Star Citizen or its single-player off-shoot Squadron 42 to release anytime soon. In the case of the star-studded Squadron 42, RSI chairman Chris Roberts chimed in after Cyberpunk 2077's disastrous launch to note that it "will be done when it is done, and will not be released just to make a date".
Anyway, since making its Kickstarter debut back in 2012 the Star Citizen project has now raised over $400 million USD in crowdfunding. And it's showing no signs of slowing down, with 2021 tracking to outperform 2020's $77 million in crowdfunding.
Here's the thing, this has been in development for the best part of a decade. Again, since 2012. The year of the very first Forza Horizon and a game called The Amazing Spider-Man that came out on Xbox 360 alongside a film with the same name. Apparently.
This is not to say that Star Citizen doesn't have much to show for all of that time, it does. The latest Alpha 3.15 update dubbed 'Deadly Consequences' adds.... space hospitals.
No doubt there's plenty more space related facilities to arrive before we get a release. That's if a version 1.0 is even possible with the scope and scale of Star Citizen continuing to grow.
