There’s been a change to the development of Kerbal Space Program 2.

Take-Two-‘s publishing label, Private Division, has announced the establishment of a new studio that’s going to be responsible for Kerbal Space Program going forward.

Located in Seattle, the unnamed studio will assume control of Kerbal Space Program 2’s development, taking over from Star Theory, the game’s former team. Studio head Jeremy Ables, creative director Nate Simpson, and lead producer Nate Robinson are all moving over from Star Theory to lead the new team.

Kerbal Space Program 2 will be released between April 1, 2020 and March 31, 2021, Private Division confirmed.

“The decision to open our own studio and move development in-house allows us to provide the development team with the necessary time and resources to complete development of KSP 2 at the quality level we all want to deliver our players,” Private Division told GamesIndustry.

Star Theory decline to comment when contacted by GamesIndustry.

Kerbal Space Program 2 is in development for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
