Star Citizen is still technically unreleased and under development, albeit available to play right now in beta, but that hasn't stopped it netting over $250,000,000 in crowdfunding to date, making it one of the highest grossing games to date, in a way.

The game doesn't make sales in the traditional sense, instead, access to the game is currently offered by backing the project. That hasn't stopped the game becoming hugely popular, and it even has it's own convention, CitizenCon, already.

The game seems to be going from strength to strength, indeed, in November the game raised up to $9 Million in backing, which is pretty huge for just one month.... indeed, the funding raised so far surpasses the development budget of GTA V, to put it in perspective.

There's always new additions being made to the game though, and this month will see a new planet, microTech, added to the game, and next year sees a new 20v20 FPS mode added named Theatres of War.
