|Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Acquires Kerbal Space Program|
Critically acclaimed space simulation game joins Company’s renowned portfolio of owned intellectual property
The acquisition of Kerbal Space Program further diversifies Take-Two’s industry-leading portfolio of owned intellectual property. The current team at Squad will continue to provide support and ongoing development for the title through game updates and expansions, including the previously announced Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion, which is expected to launch later this calendar year.
“We have been impressed with Kerbal Space Program since
its launch, and we are committed to grow this unique experience while
continuing to support its passionate community,” said
In Kerbal Space Program, players must build a space-worthy craft, capable of flying its crew of lovable humanoid Kerbals into space, while keeping them alive. Players have access to an array of parts that must be assembled to create a fully-functional spacecraft. Each part has its own function and will affect the way a ship flies (or doesn't) based on realistic aerodynamic and orbital physics. Players who successfully launch their spacecraft can explore their planet’s moons and solar system, sharing their unique creations and advice with a strong and growing online community.
The forthcoming Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion for PC adds exciting new content to the base game, including the Mission Builder and History Pack. Mission Builder enables players to create and edit missions that can be shared with the community. History Pack challenges players to re-live historical missions from humankind’s own space history, complete with a unique Kerbal Space Program twist.
