While the wider world has accepted this Star Citizen (and its single-player spin-off Squadron 42 campaign) may never come out, those who paid for the game back in 2012 – and have either paid or continued to pay since – are growing increasingly happy due to the apparent lack of progress and communication from developer Cloud Imperium Games.
The last concern of fans worries Squadron 42, for a game once due in 2016, specifically. In March, CIG has issued a promising development plan More regular updates on the game, said that “we found that the format in which we tried to see our progress in a linear manner did not match the approach we are taking in the development of Squadron 42”, and that “We must be clear: progress in Squadron 42 is happening and we are generally happy with that progress. But we know that our roadmap is not reflecting that progress. “
Now almost August, and the fans did not see or hear anything, which aroused him Reddit the posts and threads on the game forums themselves complaining about it, and asking, sometimes in less polite terms than this, what it is.
In response, CIG issued a new statement that says … they are now working on a new roadmap, but that is not ready, and that “because it is still developing a lot, we can’t share so much about it [we] I wish. “Hilariously, the statement closes with:
While not quite finished, it is currently the top priority on the web team’s current projects. In the immediate future, we plan to deliver the following communications:
- Explain the objectives of our new Roadmap and what to expect from it
- Show a clear agreement of the proposed new Roadmap
- Share an ongoing version of a Roadmap for at least one of our key teams
- And then in the last transition to this new Roadmap
Please note that last month Star Citizen drive for funding, which began in 2012, passed the $ 300 million brand. And this in 2018 I wrote a post about it Squadron 42 which ended with Cloud Imperium said “We are publishing the full roadmap for the release of Squadron 42 in December.”
