This delay comes just a few months after Take-Two Interactive-owned publisher Private Division announced that the development of Kerbal Space Program 2 had been moved from previous developer Star Theory Games to a newly-formed KSP2-dedicated studio. Take-Two acquired KSP in 2017 and announced a sequel, at the time developed by Star Theory, during Gamescom 2019.
The announcement goes on to say that despite the delay, fans can continue to expect updates in the form of feature videos, developer blogs, and more leading up to the game’s launch in Fall 2021. The game was originally announced to be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The announcement did not mention any change of plans in that regard.KSP2 joins a continually-growing list of games delayed as a result of COVID-19. Guilty Gear Strive was delayed to 2021 just last week. Even tabletop games like Cyberpunk Red have been delayed. While games are getting delayed, head of Xbox Phil Spencer said Microsoft isn’t expecting a delay for the Xbox Series X. Sony said the PS5 will not be delayed either.
