In a letter sent to players, it was revealed that the team currently has 428 employees and is still looking for more. In addition, we learned that Planetary Tech 3.0 will debut in the next few months. This technology allows you to build moons and planets, the creation of which is a huge challenge. It has been explained that most sandboxes can boast smaller maps (due to engine limits of up to 128 square kilometers) – Star Citizen is talking about an incomparably larger venture. Studio creates tools to help and accelerate the creation of planets, but they still require additional ground-breaking, including ecosystems and sound recordings. Therefore, it is not, but the financial support of the players has allowed for a considerable expansion of the team and the game itself.
“No other game has such capabilities, no other game has such support. It is an honor for us to be able to create something that has not yet been “- said the message.
Star Citizen is one of the most ambitious projects in the history of the industry. Let’s remember that the developers intend to give us several modules (apart from exploring the planets there will also be a social mode, FPS, role-playing, flying and space combat), creating one great unit. It takes a lot of time to develop this, even with so many bands, and we do not know when the official premiere will take place.
