Kerbal Space Program 2 Delayed To Fall 2021
Space exploration is the latest to fall victim to delays due to the coronavirus.
Kerbal Space Program 2 has been pushed to fall of 2021, past its previous target of releasing by March 2021. Take-Two Interactive announced the delay in an earnings statement, chalking it up to complications from the coronavirus. It said this will give the development team the time it needs to create the "best experience possible."
The dev team itself also chimed in on Twitter with a statement.
"As you all know, we've been working hard to make this the best and most authentic KSP sequel possible," the statement reads. "This is an ambitious goal. We're making a big, expansive game loaded with new features, but doing so will take longer than we previously anticipated. With everything going on 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."
The statement went on to say it will keep fans updated with developer blogs and video features leading up to launch.
Kerbal Space Program 2 is the follow-up to the engineering simulator that has you build spaceships to launch beings called kerbals into the atmosphere. As it turns out, designing spacecraft and breaking free from a planet's gravitational pull is actually very difficult, leading to hilarious mishaps as your attempts go horribly awry.
The game is planned for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
