Announced in August 2019, Kerbal Space Program 2 is in development at a new Private Division studio with support from original Kerbal Space Program developer Squad, which sold the KSP IP to the publisher in 2017.
The game was originally scheduled to be released by March 2020, but was delayed last November.
A second delay was announced by Take-Two president Karl Slatoff during the publisher’s full-year earnings call on Wednesday.
“The team at Private Division’s new Seattle studio remains hard at work on Kerbal Space Program, the next iteration of the popular space simulation franchise,” he said.
“Due to delays from Covid-19, we are moving the release of the game to fall 2021 in order to provide the team with the time they need to create the best Kerbal Space Program experience possible.”
VGC interviewed Kerbal Space Program 2 creative director Nate Simpson last year.
It was announced on Monday that an upcoming Kerbal Space Program update will add European Space Agency-themed content to the game.
Releasing on July 1 for PC and later this year for consoles, the Shared Horizons update will include two ESA missions (BepiColombo and Rosetta), the Ariane 5 rocket, an ESA-themed Kerbals space suit, plus new parts and science experiments to carry out.
