… and I believe Kerbal Space Program 2 will have an easy path to follow up on its success. In fact, the success is reflected in the fact that today, as I write this article about 9 years after the release of the original version, the game is still played by about 4,000 to 5,000 players online.

FAQ about Kerbal Space Program 2
It was unknown for a long time and it looked like Kerbal Space Program 2 won’t happen – fortunately we already have an early access date of 24.2.2023 and the developers will keep it.
Yes, the developers have promised us players simplification and features that will help players more.
The biggest difference of KSP2 vs KSP will be the much larger variability of what you can do. The universe will be bigger, the rockets will be more diverse this is my guess for the biggest change.
KSP was created as an indie game without a big studio behind it and nobody expected such a success. The developers are taking more care and it shows in the current videos.
We can expect early access to be only on PC (maybe even Mac) but then we can expect it to be available on consoles like PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X due to its success.
