Cloud Imperium Games Earns $20.7 Million In May

Just a quick post to record the remarkable month Cloud Imperium Games, the makers of Star Citizen and Squadron 42, had financially in May 2022. The month recorded the second highest month in ship & equipment sales in the 10 year history of CIG, registering $20.7 million. The catalyst for the revenue growth was the annual Invictus Flight Week ship sale with $14.8 million in sales over the 12 days of the event. Last month's revenue was only topped by the $21.5 million recorded in November 2021.

Through the end of May, the counter on the Roberts Space Industry website has increased $48.6 million so far in 2022. Over the 12-month period of 1 June 2021 to 31 May 2022, the amount publicly recorded increased by $104.8 million, cementing itself as the #1 sci-fi MMO, at least financially. No wonder other game companies are proceeding with their own plans to sell internet spaceships

Overall, the known total income reported by Cloud Imperium games over its 10 year history is $542.2 million split into three categories:

  • Pledges/Counter: $474.7 million (through the end of May 2022)
  • Subscriptions: $22.8 million (through the end of 2020)
  • Other income: $44.7 million (through the end of 2020)

When including the $63.2 million in minority investment CIG accepted in 2018-2019, the total funding for Star Citizen and Squadron 42 so far is $605.4 million.
