Happy Wednesday, everyone!
Every two weeks, we accompany the Roadmap update with a brief explanatory note to give you insight into the decision-making that led to any changes. This is part of an effort to make our communications more transparent, more specific, and more insightful for all of you who help to make Star Citizen and Squadron 42 possible.
With that said, let’s go ahead and dive into this week’s Roadmap Roundup!

This week, we’ve added a minor addition to the Release View interface. To benefit players who may be unaware of our patch release cadence, we’ve added a column for each quarter’s release for the remainder of the year. As previously communicated, we’ll add feature cards to those columns as we get closer to their respective quarter.
The following deliverable has passed its final review. For this reason, we have updated its card to Committed and changed its color to blue.
- MISC Hull A
We also wanted to confirm that the RSI Scorpius is on track to release in a subsequent 3.17.X patch.
That’s all for this week!
