'Kerbal Space Program 2' (ALL) Keeps Getting Delayed

by Rainier on Nov. 6, 2020 @ 1:54 p.m. PST

Kerbal Space Program 2 offers a multitude of ways for players to further their space adventures with a robust offering of new planets to explore, new technologies to traverse the stars, and the ability to establish colonies, all rooted in real-world science.

Players will be able to build without the constraints of planetary gravitation for the first time, which allows for larger constructions and more complex creations than ever before – including interstellar vessels. In addition, players will be able to share these experiences collectively in multiplayer for the first time in franchise history.

Kerbal Space Program 2 will also introduce a host of new of improvements including updated planets and parts, additional modding support, and an improved tutorial experience to help get new players off the ground. On one hand, these changes will offer newcomers help up the curve for what is learning literal rocket science, while on the other, keeping the challenge bar high for veteran players. 

Originally planned for Spring 2020, then delayed until Spring 2021, further pushed until Fall 2021, Take Two's latest financial report reveals Kerbal Space Program 2 is now scheduled for fiscal year 2023, which ends on March 31, 2023.

Creative Director Nate Simpson made the following statement:

Hello, all.

Gonna rip the band-aid off fast here: Kerbal Space Program 2 will release in 2022 instead of fall 2021. I know this is frustrating, especially considering that this isn’t the first time we’ve adjusted our schedule.

We knew we were taking on an immense technical and creative challenge when we started this project. We’ve heard time and again from this community that quality is paramount, and we feel the same way. It’s not enough to deliver a bunch of new features – those features have to be woven together into a stable, polished whole. We’re creating a reliable foundation on which players and modders alike can build for another decade or more. That involves solving problems that have never been solved before, and that takes time.

We’ve got a team of talented people working every challenge from every angle, and because I’m lucky enough to get a front row seat, I can see the huge leaps we’re making. It’s killing us how much of this we have to keep under our hats until the game is released. We can’t express how much we're looking forward to soaking up all your reactions and discoveries on that day.

In the meantime, we’ll keep posting cool images here to give you a taste of what’s in store. We will also continue to release feature videos and developer diaries that go more in-depth on specific areas of the game, and hopefully those will help 2021 to go by a little faster. Stay tuned for a new dev diary coming soon, as well as a new Feature Video this winter.

Thanks as always for sharing our commitment to making KSP2 as great as we all know it has to be.

-Nate Simpson

Kerbal Space Program 2 will be available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One at $59.99.
