While Star Citizen raised a mere $2.1M on Kickstarter, Chris Roberts' space combat sim Star Citizen continues to raise funds and has passed over $8.1M in total. The game continues to receive funding on the official site.
Star Citizen has garnered over 142K pledges since it began crowdfunding back in late October. In fact, over $500K has been raised on the official site in the last two weeks alone.
Roberts stated in a press release, "The amount of support we are seeing from our fans is nothing short of amazing. Our backers are totally connecting with the development team and it just gets them so excited to come in to the office every day and work to make the next great space sim."
Star Citizen is expected to be released in November 2014.
