Another year will pass without signs Squadron 42 from Star Citizen producer Roberts Space Industries.
RSI revised the project plan on December 23 and deleted the mention of one Squadron 42 beta, and RSI founder and Star Citizen creator Chris Roberts asked the project donors not expect any release or end dates for the game anytime soon. RSI’s latest guide on a Squadron 42 the launch came in august 2019, and said that a beta would come in the third quarter of this year.
Squadron 42 is a single player, story based campaign set in the universe of Star Citizen, spaceflight and first-person shooter MMO that has been under development since 201
Squadron 42The Hollywood cast on the A-list, including Mark Hamill, Gillian Anderson and Gary Oldman, was revealed in October 2015. RSI had promoted 2016 as the launch year for Squadron 42has a full release, but withdrew the forecast on CitizenCon in October 2016 and has not given a full launch date since then.
In the note to the donors, Roberts said “Squadron 42 will be done when done and will not be released just to create a date. “He also said that the RSI would not show any of Squadron 42‘s “gameplay, locations, or assets” instead of a beta, because the game is too far from a full launch to launch a marketing campaign. “If we show the non-spoiler game now, there are first-class footage and games that could have been used closer to release,” Roberts said.
“Because of this, I have decided that it is best not to ask Squadron 42 the game publicly, nor discuss any release date until we are closer to home and have great confidence in the remaining time needed to complete the game to the quality we want, ”added Roberts.
Star Citizen has since the original Kickstarter in 2012 raised more than $ 339 million in crowdfunding from nearly 3 million supporters. These figures are reported by Roberts Space Industries itself.

Roberts Space Industries also picked up a $ 46 million investment from a billionaire record producer at the end of 2018.
Most of Star CitizenFunding comes from the sale (or rental) of spaceships in the game, many of which cost hundreds of dollars.

In November 2019, the developers announced that they were building a combination of 40-player multiplayer mode, called “Theaters of War”, and hoped to deliver it in early 2020. It has been in closed alpha testing, with no beta or full launch date given.
“Meanwhile, Star Citizen is the best insight into the gameplay and the technical progress we make; you can download a new update every three months with new features and content, as well as advances in technology, ”wrote Roberts. “My hope is that you will be so engaged Star Citizen that Squadron 42 will be here before you know it. ”
