It might have hit its last stretch goal $35 million ago, but Star Citizen’s pace of funding isn’t showing signs of stopping any time soon.
At the time of writing, Star Citizen has gathered $100,040,777 in funding, with1,087,196 backers putting their money behind the dream.
While it might seem like a silly amount of money to develop a game, it’s in line with a lot of triple-A releases that don’t share the same boggling scope.
For example, Disney Infinity cost more than $100 million to develop (though presumably much of that is licensing), while console FPS Destiny reportedly cost $140 million (via Kotaku article on triple-A development cost figures).
Factor in Star Citizen’s all-star cast, and it could end up being one of the most expensive games of all time.
