Star Citizen’s single-player campaign, Squadron 42, is now scheduled for deployment in the second half of 2020

I don’t even know what to say.

We’ve got a bit of a love/hate relationship with Star Citizen here. Basically, we joke about it never coming out, and then you either a) lose your minds, or b) take it on the chin, seemingly based on the inebriation level of the author. Well, well, well, have I got news for you!? I do, actually.

The Squadron 42 roadmap has been revealed. This is a watershed moment, where we separate the “One day, maybe, this could happen” from the “We’ve now pegged a date on it, and will regret it later”. Ah, come on, I’m just taking the piss. Star Citizen’s single-player campaign really will be entering beta phase in the second half of 2020.

If you’ve been spending most of your Star Citizen daydream time worrying about the multiplayer component, you might not know that the Squadron 42 campaign is a star studded affair (Oh, lord, that’s possibly the worst unintended pun I’ve ever puked up since that other time I did that other terribly bad pun that was unintentional) with big names like Mark “You’re My Father” Hamill and the entire cast of Friends (citation required) donning space suits and being all “beam me up, Gillian Anderson”.

Anyway, there’s a roadmap for the thing, it’s over here, and if you can make head or tail of it then you’ve clearly had a less interesting Christmas than I have.


(Oh, and yes, the NAG boss people forgot to turn off my self-publishing privileges before they went on holiday, which is why your festive season is seasoned by drivel like this.)

EVO was just joking about that whole Solid Snake joining Tekken 7 thing
