Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts' Cloud Imperium hits stellar milestone

Star Citizen surpasses $9m in crowdfunding

Chris Roberts’ Star Citizen has raised over $9 million in crowdfunding.

The Wing Commander creator launched a Kickstarter campaign that raised $2.1 million, and by mid February the additional cash raised on the Roberts Space Industries web site brought the tab to $8.5 million.

The news of the latest milestone passed comes just a week after the announcement that the game’s developer, Cloud Imperium, had opened a new office in Santa Monica.

The game has already been in development at the studio for over a year, and is said to combine elements of Roberts’s previous games Wing Commander and Freelancer.

The studio also plans to implement support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
