Star Citizen has been in development at Cloud Imperium Games for more than a year. The game itself includes a "sophisticated storyline" that is set in a persistent online universe.
According to Roberts, it will fuse elements of his previous games, Wing Commander and Freelancer. Support for the virtual-reality headset Oculus Rift is planned.
The crowdfunding campaign for Chris Roberts' PC space simulator Star Citizen has reached $19 million, propelling the record-setting effort to new heights. Star Citizen is the most crowdfunded project--of any kind--of all time.
Star Citizen is expected to be released in late 2014.
