In line with other broken promises, development of Star Citizen's single-player module is now officially due to miss its 2016 release - likely by a wide margin, too.
The ambitious project has been gliding over release dates consistently since its record breaking Kickstarter years ago. Constantly adding to its overall scope, the space sim has even begun to hold yearly conferences - almost like Blizzcon - to update fans on progress across the game's many modes.
Admitting the single player campaign's 28 chapters are still in 'preliminary stages', it comes as no surprise the mode - once latched onto an MMO aspect - won't be making it this year. With no solid footage or even a new placeholder release date, we're not even sure this classes as a delay more than an indefinite postponement.
When we'll finally get to see more than early test demos of shooting mechanics in action is still up in the air. Hopefully this won't become another Last Guardian or Final Fantasy XV with a 10-hour development window.
