“Kerbal Space Program 2, the sequel to the beloved original space sim, is now planned for launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in fiscal 2021, in order to allow more time to make the experience as terrific as possible,” Take-Two president Karl Slatoff said during the company’s second quarter earnings call on Thursday.
VGC interviewed Kerbal Space Program 2 creative director Nate Simpson in August.
Elsewhere on Thursday’s earnings call, Slatoff labelled another title from publisher Private Division, The Outer Worlds, “a critical and commercial success” following its PC, PS4 and Xbox One release in October.
“In early 2020, The Outer Worlds will be released for Nintendo Switch,” he added, narrowing the game’s launch window, which was previously only confirmed for next year.
While not releasing any specific sales numbers, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick also said of the Obsidian developed RPG: “It’s outperforming our expectations handily, it got amazing reviews, we’re super excited about it, but it’s very, very early, so as we learn more, we’ll disclose more.”
VGC’s 4/5 star The Outer Worlds review said the game’s “Fallout similarities are distracting, but get into The Outer Worlds’ narrative meat and a more distinctive adventure emerges.”
Take-Two also provided updated shipment figures for several of its key games on Thursday.
Borderlands 3 has shipped nearly seven million units, while NBA 2K20 has sold in almost six million units.
The PC version of Red Dead Redemption 2 launched on Tuesday, but many users have encountered crashes when trying to launch the game.
Rockstar has attempted to tackle the issues by updating the title and the Rockstar Games Launcher, but some users still report being unable to play the game.
