Yeah that's some epic trolling
Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Even Obsidian Ant couldn't help but troll (somewhat uncustomary for him) SQ42 & SC in this video about SW:Squadrons, lol.


He did a good job at trolling sc.

Looks like some of the bigger gaming sites are writing hit pieces again.

Sad they get upset over things they are really meaningless in the grand scheme. They were easily made complacent for so long with ships/bartender/fluff vids etc.

Now the wider tech press are getting in on the act https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/07/star-citizen-dev-offers-roadmap-for-development-of-new-development-roadmap/

Disgraceful hit piece. Totally inaccurate, they said S42 was originally scheduled to release in 2015, when we all know it was supposed to release in 2014 :D

Roadmap for a roadmap story also picked up by Extreme Tech https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/313367-star-citizen-developer-publishes-a-roadmap-for-a-roadmap

They would have been better keeping quiet. Although I guess that any publicity is good for them, they may get a few new whales, who are susceptible to scams or conspiracy theories.

The end has got to be nigh.  The failures and broken promises of CiG are becoming too visible for anyone to ignore.

The entire project is now an industry punchline. Each time there's news in the past year or so, it's usually full-on derision.
