This is true. But it's also murky. They stopped stretched goals at $60 million. We're at $140 million now. So what has the extra $80 million gone towards? All we know is that we've been given a blanket statement of "it'll be used to further the development of the game" (paraphrasing). That's vague. I'd prefer some specifics but you know we're not going to be able to peak behind the curtain.....After a while they called it quits on stretch goals, but the idea is that all that additional funding has gone into the game development. We could've gotten a Wing Commander spiritual successor and CR could've run off with $100M at this point. Instead, we have four studios churning away at the most ambitious gaming project to date.
