More Delays on Star Citizen Games
In February of 2016, a single-player campaign spun off from Star Citizen. Squadron 42 is set in the same universe as the MMO and boasted quite a list of actors. Originally the two were bundled together until the developer realized "hey, we can make more money by selling these separately." Those whom already bought into Star Citizen can get the single-player game for an additional $15.
Why was the update in the roadmap important? With about a decade of development under it's belt, Star Citizen still being in an Alpha state is a cause for concern. After many revisions, Squadron 42 was expected to be out in Beta in the third quarter of 2020. Now it's been removed from the roadmap entirely.According to founder, CEO, chairman Chris Roberts "Squadron 42 will be done when it is done, and will not be released just to make a date[.]" Therefore, no roadmap. Given the game development culture of crunch time and releasing sub-par content, that is an admirable position to take. They want to release a game when they feel it's done. Great.
