Kerbal Space Program finds a new home at Take-Two


Who saw that coming?

Kerbal Space Program is now a part of Take-Two Interactive, which is one of those sentences I never envisioned writing. The popular space-exploration sim will still be supported by Squad, and the acquisition doesn't change the team's plans for future updates and the Making History expansion.

The timing for this years-old game might seem odd -- particularly given that we just heard about some former Squad staff moving over to Valve -- but the publisher had been "persistently knocking on our door trying to work with us for a long time," according to the studio. In its own announcement post, Squad noted that "this big news doesn't change much for the KSP community."

"We view Kerbal Space Program as a new, long-term franchise that adds a well-respected and beloved IP to Take-Two's portfolio as we continue to explore opportunities across the independent development landscape," said Michael Worosz, SVP, Head of Corporate Development and Independent Publishing at Take-Two. And with that, the purchase makes total sense.
