Star Citizen now has over half a billion dollars in crowdfunding

Despite almost a decade of development with no full release, Star Citizen continues to rake in money from people putting faith in the controversial space sim. As of September 20, the game has managed to accrue over half a billion dollars in crowdfunding, solidifying itself as the most expensive game to date.

It’s gained an additional $100 million in funding across one million brand-new backers since November 2021, putting the grand total at $500,121,052 across 4,096,818 backers as of writing. It’s surprising to see so much support for a game that’s still somehow in alpha, despite its first kickstarter launching back in October 2012. It managed to raise $2 million back then, and though it’s received small packets of private funding has continued to largely source its development costs through crowdfunding.
