Having been announced in 2019 for a 2020 launch, Kerbal Space Program 2 has been through its fair share of delays. And now you can add another one to the list, as developer Intercept Games and publisher Private Division have announced another one, pushing the game into 2023.
The delay will see the PC version launching in early 2023, with the console versions to follow at a later date. It's the third major delay for Kerbal Space Program 2, having been first pushed to autumn 2021 in May 2020, then subsequently given a tentative 2022 release window only months later, in November 2020.
“We’re creating a game of immense technological complexity. And we’ve assembled a team of passionate, talented people to achieve that goal. But we’ve also set ourselves a very high bar of quality,” Private Division Creative Director Nate Simpson explained. "The game has to be performant across a wide range of machines. The graphics have to be peerless. The universe has to be rich and interesting to explore."
Simpson adds that the studio has set itself an internal goal of “creating an experience that is both original and breathtaking,” adding: “And as I’ve mentioned before we’ve augmented our team with the developers of the original Kerbal Space Program, and together, we’re creating something of which we are all very very proud.”
Kerbal Space Program 2 is now targeting a 2023 release for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
