While the wider world has accepted this Star citizen (And its single player spin-off Squadron 42 Campaigns) are probably never coming to light, having paid for the game in 2012 – either paid or paid for – developers are becoming unhappy with the apparent progress and lack of communication in Cloud Imperium games.
The latest bout of fan unrest concerns Squadron 42, Once game due to 2016, Specially. in March, CIG released a promising development roadmap More regular updates on the game, “We have found that the format in which we have tried to visualize our progress linearly does not match the approach we are taking in the development of Squadron 42” and we would like to That “be clear: progress is being made on Squadron 42 and we are very happy with that progress. But we know that our roadmap is not reflecting that progress.”
It’s almost August now, and fans haven’t seen or heard a thing, quickly Reddit post And sources complaining about this on their forums of the game, and sometimes in less polite terms than this, ask what is happening.
In reply, CIG issued a new statement Which says… they are working on a new roadmap now, but it is not ready, and this is “because he is still very much in development, we can’t share that much about it [we] Would like “. Notably, this statement winds up with:
While this is not quite ready, it is currently the web team’s top priority on current projects. In the immediate future, we plan to deliver the following communications:
- Explain the goals of our new roadmap and what to expect from it
- Show the rough part of the proposed new roadmap
- Please at least share a work in progress version of the roadmap for our core teams
- And then finally transition to this new roadmap
Please note that last month Star citizen Funding drive, which started 2012, passed $ 300 million Mark. And that in 2018 I wrote a post Squadron 42 Ended with the Cloud Imperium “We will publish the full roadmap for the release of Squadron 42 in December”.
