The reason Star Citizen will take forever to make

Forums - Gaming Discussion - The reason Star Citizen will take forever to make

At what point you just accept that a game will never be done? This looks like is going to continued to be funded ad infinitum. Hell, they probably win more money that way.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I will be upgrading my PC again on this games official launch. Looking forward to it. No need for them to rush SC since most PC gamers cannot even run it properly.

Not gonna lie, thought you meant StarCraft, and I went, "well, it did take Blizzard 12 years to finally get a sequel, so I believe it" lol but Star Citizen is still years away from completion! I still would love to see how it finally turns out

I was thinking Splinter Cell....

SoulCalibur

This game will launch fully the same year Guild Wars 3, Chameleon Twist 2, Banjo Threeie, and a proper Paper Mario game all come out.

Well we have a Chameleon Twist 2 already so that's some progress. 

What?!?! There was a sequel?!?! I did not know that!



This game is the worst case of feature creep I've ever seen.

The whole thing is a ridiculous fiasco that will almost certainly come crashing down in a class action lawsuit long before anything close to what's been promised gets released.

Why exactly?

Is this game somehow obligated to achieve certain goals in a period of time?

Seems like a huge achievment that's arguably bigger than needs to be. But I guess thats also the charm of this project.

The devs made certain representations to investors about what they could do and when they could do it.  They stopped short of explicit promises, but they certainly made it seem as though they could do a lot more, a lot faster than they have.  They took money from people based on the investors belief that they were contributing to the development of the thing the devs presented.  But, in reality, the devs have continually moved the goal posts, collected more and more money, and have not delivered anything close to what's been promised on anything close to the indicated timeline.  

There's certainly a fraud argument to be made there.  I don't know for sure that it will be successful.  But, there's been so much money dumped into this hole by so many people that I have to assume some group of them will be pissed enough to look for a legal remedy.

This gen? not sure about that. The ones falling for this particular scam seem to be the ones with money, And I dont think we are talking about millenials or gen z here who have this kind off cash to blow on a single promise. 

Whats a bigger scam, this or loot boxes?



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Star Citizen.  Loot boxes, while objectionable in many ways, are not a scam.  They don't make promises that they subsequently fail to keep, over and over and over again.
