Putting Star Citizen's Latest Ship Sale Into Perspective

Cloud Imperium Games is currently holding its biggest ship sale of the year, the Intergalactic Aerospace Expo 2951. Running until 1 December at 2000 GMT, I would call the event a financial success for CIG. I'd like to just give some scale to the success of the event.

The CIG funding page after nine days of the ship sale

Through the first nine days of the event, CIG sold $15.3 million worth of ships and starter packages. Over 60,000 accounts were created during that time. In EVE Online, EVE-Offline.net shows only 33,110 characters were created during the same nine day period. As for revenue, the $15.3 million in sales generated in nine days exceeded the $15 million in combined revenue for both EVE Online and EVE Echoes posted in the 92 days of the third quarter of 2021.

Just a quick update since I typed those words last night. As of the time this article was posted, the ship sale had pulled in another $1 million. I'll give a full update after the ship sale ends, but the money making machine that is Star Citizen continues to roll on.
