Kerbal Space Program 2 2023 Overview
Kerbal Space Program 2 has been postponed again. The game’s production team updated fans on the project’s progress on Monday, stating that the sequel will be ready for release in early 2023 on PC and later that year on consoles.
“We are creating a game of enormous technological complexity, and we are taking this extra time to guarantee we hit the quality and degree of polish it deserves,” the developers wrote in the statement. “We remain committed to ensuring that KSP2 runs smoothly on a wide range of hardware, has stunning graphics, and therefore is rich in content.” We’ve assembled a fantastic team at Intercept Games, which includes previously said, important members of the initial Kerbal Space Program development team.”
Nate Simpson, the film’s creative director, also posted a video discussing the new release date and the postponement, though it didn’t provide much extra information.
Squad, an unorthodox international team based in Mexico City, created the original Kerbal Space Program, which was acquired by Take-Two in 2017. Star Theory Games (previously Uber Entertainment) was tasked with developing the sequel, which was revealed in 2019. The following year, that team was replaced by Intercept Games. According to the developers, this transition, together with the COVID-19 pandemic as well as the sheer difficulty of the spaceflight simulation, has resulted in repeated delays for the game.
Kerbal Space Program 2 was revealed on August 19 at Gamescom 2019, with an initial release date of early 2020. The game was created by Star Theory Games, formerly Uber Entertainment, which changed its name to reflect a greater connection to the Kerbal Space Program franchise. To ensure that the experience felt “real,” the team consulted a panel of scientists and experts. Including Dr. Uri Shumlak, correlate chair of the University of Washington’s Aeronautics and Astronautics department, Scott Manley, an astrophysicist as well as YouTuber who has made videos about the Kerbal Space Program, and Dr. Joel Green, also an astrophysicist.
Kerbal Space Program received complaints that the game was too difficult for beginning players to understand. As a result, the team has announced that they plan to make the game more approachable by adding additional tutorials to provide more assistance to players and ensure they understand the game’s numerous features.
Take-Two launched a new unidentified studio within Private Division to continue the project of Kerbal Space Program 2bringing in some of Star Theory’s staff, leaving it unknown what Star Theory’s role in the title remains. According to later Bloomberg reporting, Take-Two was in talks to buy Star Theory but quickly altered course. Established a new company to develop the game (Intercept Games), and then kidnapped a third of Star Theory’s developers. Including the creative director and lead producer. Three months later, Star Theory shuttered its doors.
