Star Citizen reaches $25 million in funding

Roberts Space Industries’ Star Citizen has now raised more than $25 million in funding from its community.

According to a letter published by Chris Roberts, the designer best known for the Wing Commander series, October has been the most lucrative month for Star Citizen to date.

This is particularly surprising given that the game began its crowd-funding push in October last year, when it raised just over $6.2 million through both Kickstarter and private donations. However, public interest in the project has not waned, and a series of stretch goals have pushed Star Citizen to the sort of budget normally reserved for major publishers – Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls, for example, cost around $27 million.
