The developer’s focus is on “solid, impactful content” and a “great launch.”
Squad’s ingenuous space flight simulation Kerbal Space Program is getting a rather unexpected sequel. As announced at Gamescom, Kerbal Space Program 2 will come to PC in Spring 2020 with releases for consoles planned afterwards. In the meantime, the developer took to its forums to answer a number of queries regarding pricing, availability on different storefronts and more.
Regarding its release, the developer confirmed that Kerbal Space Program 2 would be coming to Steam and other digital storefronts (along with the Xbox Marketplace and PlayStation Store down the line). It will not be exclusive to the Epic Games Store. The game will retail for $59.99 and won’t have any “purchasable in-game currency or loot boxes.”
The developer noted that, “A multitude of microtransactions has never been a part of Kerbal and we are not bringing it to KSP2. Our focus will be to deliver solid, impactful content our fans will love to incorporate into their game. Right now, we’re focused on a great launch!” Though this doesn’t necessarily mean there won’t be premium currency, the development team typically focused on expansions when it came to paid content with the first game.
Expect this trend to continue with Kerbal Space Program 2. It’s still a ways off though so stay tuned for more information.
