Star Citizen Calms Its Community

Hornets

 

Christopher Roberts, of the Roberts Space Industries brand, had some damage control to do this past weekend. Apparently a PS4 devkit was spotted on the desk of one of the developers and some members of the Star Citizen community, being of sound mind and invulnerable to over-the-top reactions, assumed that it could only mean that after gathering twenty seven million dollars in pledges and donations, that Star Citizen was ditching its PC development and moving over to be a PS4 exclusive. A perfectly reasonable assumption, like that time I called the police on my neighbor because he said “have a good day,” which could only mean that he was planning on murdering me that night.

Thankfully, Roberts clarified that Star Citizen is still coming to PC and will not be “dumbed down” for consoles, although he isn’t exactly saying no to a next gen release.

As far as consoles go Star Citizen will never be on the PS3 or Xbox 360. As for the next gen consoles, PS4 and Xbox One, we have NO CURRENT PLANS, but my stance remains open and is consistent with the many interviews I’ve given -IF the platform holders (Sony & Microsoft) allow us to update the code and data without restrictions and odious time consuming QC procedures, IF they allow our community to openly interact with each other across platforms then I would CONSIDER supporting them.

His emphasis, not mine.
