Star Citizen was the 2017 crowdfunding champ


With a relatively flat year in terms of Kickstarter’s video games fundraising, 2017 ended up handing the crown of crowdfunding back to Star Citizen. The sci-fi project raised $34.91 million over the year, versus $17.25 million for all of the 2017 Kickstarter video game projects combined.

Star Citizen’s 2017 haul was only slightly down from both 2016 ($36.11M) and 2015 ($35.9M). With game creation so lucrative, you have to wonder what incentive there is to launch it, eh? Polygon notes that the numbers here come from Roberts Space Industries and does not include any adjustments based on returns.

So far, the new year is off to a good start, with the testing of Star Citizen’s Alpha 3.0 currently running and an increased focus on the upcoming Squadron 42 single-player experience.
