trick question.
neither of those are ever releasing

lelo2play52d ago

Scalebound will release first...

Cmdrpilgrim52d ago

Genuine question; What was the last game that cost 200mil to make?

TheColbertinator52d ago

GTAV from what I remember.

EA is in the wrong when it comes to making money with loot boxes. Just put a big idea,crowdfund and update about insignificant progress every month.

So true, thats where the money is.

According to Wikipedia, Star Wars: The Old Republic is the only one to ever cost $200 million. Even GTA5 (second place), only cost $137 million (without marketing).

Well the Old Republic is also an MMO and based on what they did with the Old Republic It's nowhere near what you see what Star Citizen.

It's a fair comparison and very much shows that making an MMO of this stature takes time and money.

Wonder what happened to all that Destiny money

Why are people still giving them money? lol How much is enough?

"Why are people still giving them money?"

Well that's kind of how MMO's work. They have a subscription plan and/or microtransactions although I wouldn't call Star Citizens "micro".

Most of the people still supporting the game *want* it to be a crazy ambitious, massive project. That's why the game got so much support in the first place. Most of those people don't really care if it takes another 5 years to fully release or if funding crosses $200 million as long as the end product is good.

_-EDMIX-_51d ago

Agreed.

Games like this don't just take short number of years. Not with this type of funding and a genre this complex to build. When Bioware announced Star Wars The Old Republic, it was already in development for several years and confirmed by the team to be the longest project they've ever worked on. MMO RPGs in space don't just get cranked out for cheap and in 2 years or something. I'm shocked at any user that even thinks such a thing.

Another day another Star Citizen ship video with people talking who looked like they're almost bored to death.

Ya think 170m went into the game? I’m sure a large percentage is going into the pockets
