Funding goals

From Star Citizen Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The developers of Star Citizen have decided to fund its development through crowdfunding, which is essentially requesting contributions from the eventual players of the game.

Goals[edit | edit source]

There were two separate campaigns, a direct campaign by the developers themselves and a campaign through Kickstarter. The Kickstarter campaign had its own separate goals, and there were goals for the overall campaign.

The campaigns both ended on November 19, 2012. A record-breaking $6 million was raised overall and all of the funding goals were met.
