'Not actual gameplay'. Still, a pretty awesome trailer and a definite buy.

WOW. . . incredible trailer. :D

I will have my new machine by then. (sigh) besides I haven't gotten the 1st one.

But seriously, that was amazing, I will be watching with interest.  :)

I noticed that the original developer, Squad, wasn't listed in the opening credits. Did they sell the rights to a second game to someone else?

Saw this in an article at pc gamer...looks like new devs.

Squad, the original developer, isn't working on this sequel. Instead, Simpson leads the development team at Star Theory Games—formerly Uber Entertainment, who made the Monday Night Combat series and Planetary Annihilation.

Just saw this myself and I'm very excited. I always loved Kerbal, and Kerbal 2 looks like its everything I could hope for in a sequel. Improved graphics, new parts and features... looks great!

The fact that Squad isn’t at the wheel anymore does make me a tad sceptical.
We’ll see.

Squad hasn't been involved for awhile now and the game has been supported by the new team with all the DLCs coming from the new team, as well. I'd also prefer if Squad was still piloting the ship, but it is what it is...if the sequel is half as good as the original, it will still be a must buy.

I'm not gonna lie, I initially misread this as "Kerbal Space Pogrom 2" and thought the series had taken a very dark turn.
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.
- Cormac McCarthy, Blood Meridian


If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

I guess it's sort of nice that the word "tactical" seems to refer to some kind of seriousness during your moments of mental clarity.

My God...the Jews really cannot catch a break...even in the cold, dark reaches of Kerbal Space, they are persecuted.

Finally a little news about KSP 2.

Next Gen Tech is a major feature of KSP 2. In this video, the development team goes in-depth on a number of the new engines that players will be able to utilize in KSP 2 including the nuclear pulse propulsion engine, metallic hydrogen engine, and more. This video is the first in a series of feature videos that will deep dive on the key new features of KSP 2 and the development process behind them.

Very cool.  I didn't play the first game, but this is looking pretty damn amazing.

Release date slips to Fall 2021.  Bummer.  Sounds mostly like delayed due to Covid19.
