Cloud Imperium Games has updated its backers on the next big update for the massive space sim Star Citizen. As it turns out, it’s update 3.1 and it’ll be out in late March. The developer also said that there would be a “lot of content and enhancements” for the rest of the year.
It remains to be seen what update 3.1 contains but the quarterly release cycle for Cloud Imperium has been fairly beneficial. Alpha 3.0 arrived right before Christmas and brought its own share of new features and enhancements to the game.
Perhaps more amazing is the fact that Star Citizen’s crowd-funding total continues to increase. On December 23rd, it was a little over $174 million. Now, the total is over $176 million ($176,157,353 to be exact). Whether it’s due to the game’s selling of expensive ships for potential pilots or more players throwing their lot in for Chris Roberts’ magnum opus, it’s certainly nothing to scoff at especially in this age of blockbuster budgets.
