In a press release, the publishers of Grand Theft Auto, XCOM and Civilization, Take-Two interactive revealed that they have now officially acquired Kerbal Space Program. While the company may have bought off the assets of the game, the developers, Squad are still in charge of developing the game, they will “continue to provide support and ongoing development for the title through game updates and expansion”.

The important thing to know is that this big news doesn’t change much for the KSP community,” team states, “Squad and the current development team is still here and we’re hard at work on KSP and its future updates, but now we are fortunate enough to do so with the help of an experienced publisher like Take-Two, and we couldn’t be more excited and happy to see where our conjoint collaboration will take KSP forward.”

Kerbal Space Program’s Making History expansion is still on its way, “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.”

While the KSP developers squad have been in the limelight quite a lot lately; lead developer Felipe Falanghe had announced over a year back that he was going to leave the company, and a little over a week earlier, valve had hired members of the Kerbal Space Program development team. This lead the developers Squad to release this statement “continue to be an independent studio with the core KSP team remaining at Squad”
