Roberts Space Industries founder and head of development of Star Citizen Chris Roberts published a big letter in which he summed up the results of 2020 and shared plans for the future. This week developers launched Progress Tracker on their website, in which you can monitor the development progress of Star Citizen and Squadron 42, and Release View, where you can find out the approximate date of the release of innovations. Future Progress Tracker will be able to monitor the work of more team (as long as there are only 20 teams out of more than 50), and Release View will account for the next four quarters instead of one.
Also, users are waiting for other improvements. At the same time, Roberts notes that new ways to follow plans to support Star Citizen are not designed to find out when Squadron will be finished 42, a single story campaign space simulation.
The founder of the studio decided he would not show the gameplay of Squadron 42 publicly, as well as discuss the release date of the game until the team got close to finishing straight development process. In October, Roberts Space Industries once again postponed testing Squadron 42.
