Kerbal Space Program is a deep flight simulation game with rich building options. Developed by Squad, the original Kerbal Space Program was ported to just about every possible platform possible. Namely, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, macOS, and even Linux. Now, we’re finally getting a follow-up with Kerbal Space Program 2 as developed by Star Theory and Private Division.

Scheduled to release in 2020, Kerbal Space Program 2 looks like it’s doing what it did so well in the original but on a grander scale.

“With the original Kerbal Space Program having become one of the most beloved games of all time and now bigger than ever, Kerbal Space Program 2 has been fully redesigned from the ground up to meet the demands of modern and next-generation space exploration,” the trailer description reads.

“Build a space program, construct powerful spacecraft, design resource-gathering colonies, and much more to uncover the secrets of the galaxy. A plethora of exciting new features will captivate veteran and returning players, as well as usher in a whole new wave of Kerbonauts to the ingenious and comedic world that has entertained millions of players.”

Again, Kerbal Space Program 2 is scheduled to launch sometime in 2020. Stay tuned, as we’ll be posting more updates from Gamescom 2019 here at AllGamers!
