Star Citizen Has Raised $369 Million Over The Last 7 Years

Star Citizen has finally hit that $250 Million milestones in its crowdfunding campaign.

Funding for Chris Roberts' space epic began seven years and nine months ago, which works out to be just north of $US2.88 million every month.

The total now stands at $250 million, sourced from more than 2.4 million players.

As PC Gamer highlighted, it raised $9 million in November alone - one of its strongest ever months - due to the CitizenCon fan event. Cloud Imperium Games seems likely to overtake that milestone relatively quickly, which is an impressive spot to be in for a game that's still firmly in its testing stage.

The current deadline for the single-player component of Star Citizen, Squadron 42, is now aiming for a Q4 2020 deadline.

It's an astonishing sum of money to have raised through backer support, particularly for a game that is still heavily in development.
