Star Citizen creator Christopher Roberts said in 2020 that the various gameplay elements that have been promised over the years are no longer a pipe dream and won’t take decades more to implement. However, a year later, an advertising watchdog warned the studio against marketing concept ships, saying they needed to make it clear they were selling a product that didn’t exist yet.
