Kerbal Space Program 2 Early Access Begins In 2023

Kerbal Space Program 2: developer Intercept and publisher Private Division have announced that the game’s early access release for PC will occur on February 24 of next year, 2019, on Steam and the Epic Games Store. For the same price of $49.99 USD, you may get it on the KSP website.

After the introduction of Kerbal Space Program 2 at Gamescom 2019, development seems to have hit some bumps. The release date of the space simulation game has been moved back from 2020 to 2021 and then 2022. A new, in-depth trailer for Kerbal Space Program 2 has been released by Private Division and Intercept, announcing the game’s early access release on PC only in 2019, with console releases to follow.

You can see the game’s multiplayer mode, colonies, intergalactic travel, modding, and more for the first time in this clip. The developers claim that users will gain access to cutting-edge technology that will allow them to travel to other star systems and construct their own unique and exciting adventure.

Colonies, a much-requested addition to Kerbal Space Program 2, allow players to find and collect rich materials from which to construct their own bases. It will be challenging for them to establish their own colonies since they will need models for sustainable energy production, housing, and transportation.

Kerbal Space Program has a multiplayer option where players can team up to explore the Kerbolar system. By collaborating with other players in the new multiplayer mode, players can gain access to new vehicle collisions, completists, adventures, and interstellar navigation, allowing them to travel between star systems aboard fusion-powered megaships. When the player reaches a new star system, they can send out landers and rovers to investigate the planets there.

By launching the game in early access, the developers hope to receive input from players that they may use to make any necessary final adjustments. Despite the fact that Intercept Games has not yet announced a specific release date for Kerbal Space Program 2, the game’s early access edition will be available for PC on February 24th, 2023, allowing players to try out the game’s new features, systems, and multiplayer mode.

Kerbal Space Program 2 Development

The sequel to Kerbal Space Program was unveiled at Gamescom 2019 on August 19, with an early 2020 release window. Star Theory Games, formerly known as Uber Entertainment, rebranded as such to more clearly indicate its close ties to the Kerbal Space Program series. In order for Squad to concentrate on releasing additional patches for the original game, development was handed off to Star Theory.

The team consulted a panel of scientists and experts to ensure the experience felt “grounded,” including Dr. Uri Shumlak, the associate chair of the Aeronautics and Astronautics department at the University of Washington, Dr. Scott Manley, an astrophysicist and YouTuber who has made videos on Kerbal Space Program, and Dr. Joel Green, an astrophysicist.

There have been complaints that the learning curve for Kerbal Space Program is excessively steep. Since the development team wants players to have an easier time getting into the game and becoming familiar with its features, they plan to increase the number of tutorials available to them.

It is unknown what Star Theory’s continued role is on the title as Take-Two has established a new unidentified company under Private Division to continue production of Kerbal Space Program 2.

Bloomberg’s follow-up reporting confirmed that Take-Two had been in acquisition talks with Star Theory before suddenly changing course, forming a new company (Intercept Games), and hiring away one-third of Star Theory’s staff, including the creative director and lead producer. Three months later, Star Theory ceased operations. On August 21st, it was revealed that Squad, creators of the first Kerbal Space Program, would be working on the sequel.

The release date was pushed out to 2022 in November 2020, and in that month, creative director Nate Simpson made the announcement. The game’s official Twitter account revealed in June 2021 that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S versions would be released in 2022. A new release date of early 2023 was revealed in May 2022.
