This is to allow “more time to make the experience as terrific as possible,” as per Take-Two Interactive.
Take Two Interactive reported some good news today with Borderlands 3 and The Outer Worlds being incredibly successful for the company. After its financial briefing, however, it announced in an investors call that Kerbal Space Program 2 will be out in fiscal year 2021. The space exploration sim was previously stated to release in 2020.
Take-Two Interactive president Karl Slatoff stated that, “Kerbal Space Program 2, the sequel to the beloved original space sim, is now planned for launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, in fiscal 2021, in order to allow more time to make the experience as terrific as possible.” While this means it could potentially launch by March 31st 2021, it could also arrive sometime after April 1st in 2020.
Kerbal Space Program 2 was revealed at the recent Gamescom Opening Night Live. While Squad is still working on the first game, Star Theory is in charge of the sequel, delivering new features like multiplayer, colonies that can orbit planets and much more. Unlike other Private Division-published titles like The Outer Worlds, it’s not going to be exclusive to the Epic Games Store and won’t have loot boxes or “purchasable in-game currency.” In the meantime, we’ll have to wait for an additional details.
