Star Citizen Breaks Crowd-Funding Records, Raises Over $5 Million
Star Citizen, a hugely anticipated sci-fi space trading and combat simulator, has broken all previous records to become the highest earning crowd-funded project in history. The upcoming PC game has earned over $5 million in revenue, more than double its goal of $2 million and is still climbing with every passing hour.

The game is planned for a 2014 release and features many of the traditional elements found in Roberts’ classic titles including Wing Commander which pioneered the genre. Check the official trailer below to see the game in action!
Star Citizen is slated for a release date sometime in 2014 for PC. For more information or to secure your own copy of the game please visit the official website.
