single-star campaign by Star Citizen, named Squadron 42, is according to the developer in 2020. This appears from a schedule with the planning for Squadron 42 that developer Cloud Imperium Games has published.

The planning shows that the beta of Squadron 42 will be released in the second half of 2020. The optimizations in the context of the alpha version will be implemented in the first half of 2020 according to the schedule. If this schedule is followed, the developer will finish the content at the end of 2019; it is still about 28 different chapters. This scheme means that Squadron 42 comes with years of delay; this story section of Star Citizen would come out earlier in 2016, after which it was postponed again to 2017 .

Chris Roberts, the founder of the long-running game project of space simulation game Star Citizen, also announced that his company recently received a private investment of $ 46 million from billionaire Cliver Calder and his son. Roberts seems to suggest that this entire investment will be used for marketing purposes. According to Roberts, this investment ensures that the developer can remain independent. Worldwide, more than 500 employees work on the game.

In exchange for the $ 46 million, investors get ten percent of the shares of Cloud Imperium Games and multiple positions on the board. Roberts emphasizes that he is still in control, as he is still chairman of the board, CEO and majority shareholder.

According to the company behind the game, crowdfunding has already raised a tight 212 million dollars for Star Citizen. That is not the investment of 46 million. Part of the popularity of the game is due to the fact that Roberts is at the head of the development of the game. He worked on games like Freelancer and the Wing Commander games. Alpha version 3.4 of Star Citizen has now been released.
