The upcoming sequel shared to hold plenty of promise for the game’s cult following which have been supporting the title since the debut of the series back in 2011. Integrating next-generation capabilities such as reworked space ship assembly and revised AI. This also goes on to apply to how parts operate which could introduce better celestial feats for players.

One highlighted addition is that players will have the ability to embark on travel deep into the galaxy and uncover faraway planets and solar systems well outside of the nearby planets that fans have managed to overtake in the first game Colonies also shows to be another addition that will go to stress new challenges the players can expect to face also.

However, with everything to take into consideration, this is a big responsibility for developer Squad to take on. With that being said, the ongoing pandemic has surely affected how development is paced and in a new announcement the team shares that Kerbal Space Program 2 will now be releasing in the latter months of 2021 than the team would have anticipated.

“With everything going on in the world today due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we’re facing many unique challenges that require more time to safely iterate, create, test, and make KSP2 as great as it can be,” Squad tells in the shared letterhead. “We understand this isn’t the news you were hoping to see, but ultimately we need to make the best decision for the development of Kerbal Space Program 2.”

Taken from the situation at hand, it is very understanding as to why the team asks for more time on the title. Acknowledging that many studios continue to work under these guidelines in favor of their safety and those they work with, it has affected overall performance in development. Most recently, we have witnessed with Arc System Works as the team shared that the approaching Guilty Gear Strive will now be shipping in early 2021. You can read the full report by heading here.
