Kerbal Space Program 2 Has Been Delayed Again

By Alistair Jones on at

Kerbal Space Program 2 has been delayed to next autumn. In an announcement last night, the developer said that the change was a result of "unique challenges" posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Yesterday's messages says that "we are making a big, expansive game loaded with new features, but doing so will take longer than we previously 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."

At a time when a number of high-profile releases are being delayed, this hold-up is notable in its length. Kerbal Space Program 2 was originally due to release in March this year, but was eventually moved back to a release date during the 2021 financial year. That might have meant any time between April 2020 and March 2021, but the change is likely to mean an extra six months on top of that original delay.
