Bugs delay Star Citizen's dogfighting module, Arena Commander

Star Citizen's dogfighting module, Arena Commander, won't launch today as planned because of unresolved bugs, creator Chris Roberts announced on the spaceflight simulator's official website.

Developer Cloud Imperium's Arena Commander V0.8 has "too many blocking and critical issues outstanding," Roberts wrote alongside a bulleted list of existing problems. 

"It would be foolish to release an unstable build, even if pre-alpha for the sake of meeting an internal deadline," Roberts wrote. "This is the power of the crowdfunding that made Star Citizen possible: a publisher would make us ship tomorrow regardless of the current build quality … but as you are all focused on quality rather than a financial return for shareholders we are able to take a few more days to deliver something that is stable."

Roberts also announced recently that the crowdfunded game earned $44 million from backers. For more on Arena Commander, be sure to read our impressions of its public unveiling.
