Regulators get Star Citizen to add disclaimer to unfinished ships


By Aron Gerencser September 9, 2021

If you break as many records and get as big as Star Citizen, chances are sooner or later you're going to start tangling with regulators.

Cloud Imperium Games has just experienced this.

One disgruntled backer reported the company to the authorities, which led to the addition of a new disclaimer to unfinished ships.

It's been many long years since Star Citizen left Kickstarter behind.

That said, the crowdfunding never stopped - they just moved to their own platform.

Thing is, Cloud Imperium Games is selling ships it hasn't finished making yet.

One backer in the UK turned to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).

The regulators stated that the company did "go against the Advertising Code of Practice".

Cloud Imperium was contacted to add a disclaimer to unfinished ships going forward.

Gamers following the development of Star Citizen are not satisfied.

The new disclaimer still uses wording that treats the eventual flyable release of these ships as a fact.

Star Citizen and Squadron 42 still have no fixed release dates.
