Kerbal Space Program 2 is a singleplayer free-roaming camera simulation and vehicle simulator game in the Kerbal Space Program series. It was initially being developed by Star Theory Games after which development was taken over by Intercept Games. The game was published by Private Division. It make use of the Unity 2020 engine.

Its Early Access release on February 24, 2023 wasn't received well by critics and the publish, citing poor performance, many bugs and missing features from Kerbal Space Program.[1]

The developers promised upcoming major performance optimizations, scaling down some graphical aspects more on lower settings to improve performance, switching to Unity's HDRP renderer (improved visual quality and performance), Science Mode, colonies, interstellar exploration (new star systems) and multiplayer.[2][3][4]

The first patch during the Early Access period brought with it a laptop audio mode, many performance optimizations, loading optimizations, several improvements, many bugfixes and more.[5]
