After reading some more, there are a few very interesting points, which reveals some information not previously public.

Crytek seems to have been involved early; in fact, the original development on Star Citizen may have mostly been Crytek doing the job. The company, now mostly defunct, apparently licensed out its engine on the cheap due to the close level of sharing and to further that sharing with an eye towards expanding their market. This would probably not have been cheap, and may have drained the company's resources.
