During a period beginning on August 14th, 2016 and ending on October 12th, 2016, Star Citizen brought in $10 million in funding.
Obviously those who have followed Star Citizen for a long time know that this funding allows CIG to continue its work on building Star Citizen and Squadron 42 including expanding its offices and hiring more developers.
I do not expect, over the long term, for this speed of funding to continue. However, over the short term (next 10 weeks) I expect it certainly will. Traditionally in the Star Citizen world the Anniversary Sale + Livestream (roughly the 3rd week of November) and the Holiday Sale + Livestream are the times of the year that Star Citizen receives the most funding.
As of the time of writing, Star Citizen had brought in $128,537,884 in total.
I think it likely that the community will be celebrating the $140 million milestone before the year's end.
Why would I make such a prediction? Well, because the numbers bear it out.
The Polaris sale will bring SC to $129 million by October 17th. Regular daily funding of about $40,000 will bring in $3 million in the last 75 days of 2016.
This brings us to $132 million.
If you look at the 2015 Anniversary and Holiday sales, accounting for the normal daily funding they brought in a total of roughly $7.8 million.
So, especially given the reasonable likelihood that we will see something of a Squadron 42 unveiling before year's end, I believe that the Star Citizen community will be raising a rum and eggnog before the New Year to toast $140 million dedicated to the most ambitious game ever created.
