This is the third delay to hit Kerbal Space Program 2 in as many years.

Kerbal Space Program 2, the sequel to the silly/realistic space exploration simulator, was announced in 2019. This was two years after the Kerbal Space Program IP (and the studio who created it, Squad) were bought by Take Two in 2017.

In that time, Kerbal Space Program 2 has changed developers – from Star Theory Games (formerly Uber Entertainment) to Intercept Games – and been delayed due to Covid-19.


Now, in a video titled Kerbal Space Program 2 Timing Update, creative director Nate Thompson has announced a third delay to the game.

In the video, Thompson says that Kerbal Space Program 2 will be coming to “PC in early 2023”, and to consoles “after that”.

The complexity and ambition of the game are cited as the main reasons for the delay, rather than any external factors, though Thompson does also mention that developers from the original Kerbal Space Program have been brought in to help realise the vision for the sequel.
