Every time they reach more funding they show something new off. This will be the forever trend. This game will never see the light of day.

It's already running on my PC, and it's a lot of fun for something that will "never see the light of day" lol.

PS: They show something new off every week. The fact that they also reach more funding milestones almost every week is unrelated, but it's simply that there are a lot of games out there that are happy to support it, in spite of the irrational haters.

The game begin development is 2011 and originally had a release date of 2014. Here we are at the end of 2019 and development continues. The game is vaporware at this point.

@Jin_Sakai lol. You're trying way too hard.

1: the game was announced in 2012 and it didn't even have a development team back them. They had to build one before starting actual production. So much for 2011.
2: Vaporware doesn't mean what you think it means. Here we are at the end of 2019, and a lot of people are already having a lot of fun with it, me included.

Obviously, you haven't tried it, nor you know much about it. Maybe you should stick to what you actually know instead of throwing hot air at what you don't. Looking at your comment history, that knowledge doesn't extend beyond the very limited borders of a console.

“Obviously, you haven't tried it, nor you know much about it. Maybe you should stick to what you actually know instead of throwing hot air at what you don't.”

You’re right. I’m not trying an unfinished game that milks crowdfunding and continues to show off something ever now and again to keep the funding coming.

This game has reached $240 million in funding and still isn’t near completion. That’s nearing the cost of GTAV development. That is an insane amount of money for an unfinished game thats been in development for nearly a decade.

Most people realize it’s vaporware at this point. Maybe it’ll see the light of day while we’re still alive. Although it would be a miracle.

As I said, you're trying way too hard.

You shouldn't talk for "most people" when you have no idea of what you're talking about.

Quite obviously, there is a lot of people who enjoy supporting this game, and it isn't certainly "just me." Crowdfunding doesn't fund itself.

Incidentally, every single one of those people know about Star Citizen and its situation better than you do.

What is fun about it? And yes I've played it. I don't get it, it just seems like a very expensive interactive tech demo.

Neonridr7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

you are very defensive about this game. It's ok. If you want to be like some of those people who spend thousands of dollars on a title, be my guest. It's your money. The fact is, they are using funds to continually pay for development towards a title that may never officially be completed. I mean will this ever be a game that is simply sold on Steam and you can buy a complete package? Or will it just be this strange crowdfunding business model forever until the main guy gets bored of the project or eventually runs out of money?

Giblet_Head7d ago (Edited 7d ago )

@Neonridr And why wouldn't he be defensive? EVERY. SINGLE. article has the same comments from people who've never played it and simply bandwagon because it makes them appear and feel relevant for what they lack the ability or knowledge to find out for themselves. I know it's trendy right now to not be an objective thinker, especially on here, but let's be realistic about the majority here who know nothing about this game and it's progress.

Irrational haters? Nothing irrational about speaking out against triple digit microtransactions. Game looks amazing, I won't deny but until it looks like they actually want to progress the game where a full release is their objective, I won't touch it with a 30ft pole. Can't blame them though really, why release the game properly and allow people to earn ships ingame when you can charge console prices for just a single digital ship?

Nope. They actually announced the game 2 months later than you claim, and you can play an early access alpha that will never leave early access and is totally worth $240 million. Owned you! Go back to fortnite on console, you know nothing about PC.

bluefox7557d ago

Why would they ever release it? They don't want the gravy train to ever end.

Hello Cloud Imperium, proud of you guys. I would love to play this game on PS5.

The devs really got the hand of this now. Show some footage, get money, show partial content, get some money, flash this flash that, get some money. Everybody wins.....

rlow17d ago

It's a failure on my list because they haven't held to their promises.....I'm hoping I'm wrong and it will launch someday.....but to milk something this long and not have a complete game...or at least a first act is inexcusable. This is not how you run a business... I'm really surprised they haven't been sued yet.

Torrises7d ago

Even if this game is ever released, who would want to play a game where you can literally pay $27,000 to get the best ship that no one will ever be able to compete with? This game redefines pay to win.
