Yesterday at Gamescom, the game studio Star Theory announced that they would be developing a sequel to Kerbal Space Program that would be coming out sometime in 2020. Now, new Kerbal Space Program 2 questions have caused the developers to assuage some of the big fears that PC gamers have about it.
To start off with, there’s the big question of what client it will be getting sold off of. With Epic Games snatching up almost every hotly-anticipated PC game that they can in the past few months, many gamers are worried that Kerbal Space Program 2 will face the same fate.
However, Star Theory says that when the game releases, it will be coming on Steam and various other digital storefronts, along with the Xbox Live Marketplace and Playstation Store, so you’ll be able to get it on any storefront that you want.
The next of the Kerbal Space Program 2 questions was related to whether or not the game would have microtransactions. Those will also not be a thing in the game. Star Theory’s reasoning was that they wouldn’t start it now after microtransactions weren’t a thing in the original Kerbal Space Program game.
Thirdly, there’s the issue of whether or not the game will be made available on the Mac or Linux platforms rather than just PC. Since some PC gamers are stuck with Mac computers or Linux computers, it’s a surprisingly important question.
However, currently Star Theory couldn’t comment on whether or not the game would be available on those platforms at any point, though they did say that they were interested in bringing Kerbal Space Program to as many platforms as possible.
We don’t have a full-on release date for Kerbal Space Program 2 yet, just a window of Spring 2020, but hopefully the Kerbal Space Program 2 questions that the studio answered will at least ease some of the fears that gamers have.
