That depends on the player count

Our 3 and 4 player games have gone exactly 9 or 10 generations so far (6 games played so far) ((all with corp era cards, all with zero starting resource income))

Our 5 player game was also 9 generations.

I think we've been coming in at the 10-12 generation range.

My shortest game was 6 generations (5 players), but that was really really extreme. The other answers here are much more representative.

I played twice so far. With five players we had 7 rounds, with four it was 8 rounds.

2 players: 14-16.
4 players: 9-12.

But take a note, that really does not mean much. In a few first generations players take 1-2 actions. Last ones even 12.

Whether or not you use the Corporate Era variant should make a difference as well, right?

I've been playing without Corporate Era, with drafting, and mostly five player. Most of those games have been between 6 and 8 generations. Though last week, I had a game end in just 5.

First game was two players and should have ended after the 12th generation, but we dragged it out on purpose to 13.
