Kerbal Space Program 2 gets yet another delay. This time, your next space-faring adventure is getting pushed back to some time in 2022.
The last time we heard anything big out of Kerbal Space Program 2 it was the news that the game was being delayed until 2021 due to COVID-19. Unfortunately, news came down today that the team is pushing the game back even further. While the reasoning this go-around is a bit more nebulous, it’s important for devs to take the time they need to develop great games. After all, I’m sure most KSP fans would prefer a well-cooked dinner over a rushed trip to the gas station for a can of tuna and some Cheetos.

For those who haven’t played the original, Kerbal Space Program 2 is all about creating your own rocketship program. The game takes a sandbox approach to gameplay, letting you mess around to your heart’s content. The sequel builds on the original in some neat ways. Most notably, it will include a new multiplayer mode that should make for even wilder hijinks.
Other additions include things like new propulsion methods, habitation modules for on-surface building, and interstellar travel. That is quite the list of things I know absolutely nothing about. Which, to be fair, is sort of Kerbal Space Program for me. It’s a game I love to watch people mess around with, but struggle to make much progress myself. So, while I’ll likely enjoy KSP2 from afar, I’m very excited to see all the new stuff the team has dreamed up.
Kerbal Space Program 2 is set to launch sometime in 2022. The game was originally announced for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. However, it wouldn’t be surprising to see those platforms shift given the new launch date.
