Kerbal Space Program 2 will not leave base for a while as Developer Star Theory has delayed release till early 2023.
In a video message and on the project’s forum
, Creative Director Nate Simpson explained that designing the space flight simulator has “tremendous technological complexity” and the team needs more time to ensure that it is completely polished.
In the video Simpson stated that, We’ve also set ourselves a very high bar of quality. The game has to [perform] across a wide range of machines. The graphics have to be peerless. The universe has to be rich and interesting to explore. We’ve set ourselves the goal, internally, of creating an experience that is both original and breathtaking.”

What do we know about Kerbal Space Program 2?
Just like its predecessor
, Kerbal Space Program 2 tasks players with commanding a space program navigated by green astronauts to construct rockets and other crafts to explore space. The game utilizes realistic physics to allow players to execute real-life orbital maneuvers used to locate and land upon celestial bodies. The sequel was first announced at Gamescon 2019 with a release window of 2020. But unfortunately the developers missed the window due to the Covid Pandemic and set the window of launch as fall of 2021. But the missed this window too and was set to arrive later this year.
Now players will have to wait as the reease date gets pushed back to 2023
