The best laid plans of mice and men don’t hold a candle to those creating a virtual universe from scratch. The shifting dates and missed development targets of Star Citizen have been of some concern and confusion this year, especially considering that the game is being released piecemeal instead of all of once.
To help set things straight, Star Citizen fan site Imperial News has done the footwork to compile all information pertaining to the release schedule going forward. The article also draws in rumors and developer quotes to provide as accurate a picture of the future as possible.
Let’s summarize the summary: By the end of this year Star Citizen release the first iteration of Star Marine, bring Arena Commander up to version 2.0, and expand the social module to feature persistence, shops, NPC AI, and more environments. In 2016 the game is slated to bring online more social module functions, the first episode of Squadron 42, and the long-awaited persistent universe.
