everything is still basically in an early barely-playable, "Alpha," state. Certain things in, "Star Citizen," work but more and more features keep being announced with this all seeming to be more like an impressive tech demo of an engine as opposed to a real game. As for the first-person shooter spin-off, "Squadron 42," that supposedly is finally coming-out in 2020...or is it?
Apparently, these games have some drama in that another company named Crytek has filed a lawsuit with the claim its engine is being used without their permission/them getting a cut. Cloud Imperium Games has said they aren't using any Cryengine technology, and has argued the lawsuit against them has to be dismissed as without the games being released, how can there be a lawsuit? Crytek is saying if, "Squadron 42," is supposedly due to be released this year then the lawsuit is, "Ripe" but the suit keeps getting pushed back because the game is always getting delayed...with Cloud Imperium Games seeming to want to delay stuff out of this year as if, "Squadron 42," will not actually come out in 2020. Keep in mind, "Star Citizen," still seems like it will maybe come out still years later or collapse into a stupendous mess.
