Kerbal Space Program 2 has been delayed into 2022, having previously been slated for Fall 2021.
The news was announced by Creative Director Nate Simpson on the game's official forums.
We knew we were taking on an immense technical and creative challenge when we started this project," Simpson said. "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."
The sequel to the cult-classic space flight sim was originally due to launch on Xbox One earlier this year, but was delayed to Fall 2021, and was now been pushed back even further. This follows a controversial takeover of the project by Take-Two, who moved development of the game away from indie developer Star Theory to in internal studio earlier this year.
