The fact that money has been raised for Star Citizen for almost ten years does not diminish people's willingness to contribute to the mammoth project. Last year, the game raised $85 million, according to Tweaktown.
That is over 8 million dollars more than the previous record year 2020. Between 2013 and 2018, it pulled in just over 30 million dollars a year. In 2019, it increased to 47 million, followed by 77 million in 2020 and thus 85 million last year. That according to compilations here and here. That means an inflow of 232,000 dollars a day.
Star Citizen has been crowdfunded since its launch in the fall of 2012, and a total of $427 million has fallen into the developers' account. By comparison, GTA V is often said to have been the most expensive game of all time, with a price tag of around 260 million dollars.
The latest alpha version of Star Citizen was released at Christmas, and now carries version number alpha 3.16. Release dates do not yet exist, and are expected to be delayed. The same applies to the stand-alone campaign part Squadron 42, which can not yet be tested by buyers.
