This Week in Star Citizen
May 8th, 2017

Greetings Citizens

Greetings Citizens,

I hope you all had a stellar weekend. I know I did! I am in the final stretch of my trip to LA, where I have been working closely with the rest of the team planning and discussing all things community/event related for 2017. We’re really excited about meeting many of you at Gamescom and CitizenCon later this year.

With that, let’s take a look at this week.

On Tuesday, the Lore Team will release another installment in one of their many continuing series. The Star Citizen Universe is rich with history and a past/future worth exploring. If you find yourself easily immersed in a good story, fascinated by the design of Star Citizen, or just hungry for more information, these posts are made for you!

On Wednesday, Mark Abent returns to smash yet another bug in an all new episode of Bugsmashers! This show gives a unique opportunity to explore the complexity of Star Citizen’s development.

On Thursday, Around the Verse checks in with Foundry 42 UK for an in-depth look at what the studio has been up to in the last month.

Speaking of last month, Friday brings us the April Monthly Report! Having the opportunity to take a step back and see all the work being done by our team around the globe is nothing less than inspiring. These are a treat for us as much as they are for all of you!

As a reminder, there will be no Happy Hour this Friday, but we are really excited to have Josh Herman joining us next week for another installment of Happy Hour: Gamedev.

That’s all for this week, we’ll see you in the ‘Verse!
