Squadron 42 is a single player game [1] developed by Chris Roberts and his development studio Cloud Imperium Games. It shares the same game lore and game development background and was sold together with Star Citizen until the game "pledge packages" were split on 2016-02-14.[2]

Development

SQ42 was announced originally in a Kickstarter campaign in 2012 together with Star Citizen. After the implementation of more Stretch goals (the last stretch goal was achieved 2014-11-10) the release was subsequently postponed. After CitizenCon in 2015, a new homepage "Answer the Call" showed the date 2016. At CitizenCon 2016 Roberts confirmed a delay of the game. Its release date is currently unknown. [3][4]
