"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 Michael Worosz, senior vice president, head of corporate development and independent publishing at Take-Two, in a release. Take-Two might own the I.P. now, but development hasn't been wrestled away from its creator, Squad, who will "continue to provide support and ongoing development for the title through game updates and expansions", including the forthcoming Making History expansion that will launch later this year.
Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar and 2K Games, has announced that it has acquired both Kerbal Space Program and its developer, Squad. It has since gone on to sell more than 2 million copies on console and PC.
The blog post concluded the statement saying the studio is excited to work with the new publisher, going on to say that "The team at Take-Two are big fans of KSP, who have been persistently knocking on our door trying to work with us for a long time". The current team are still in place, still working on KSP and its updates, "but now we are fortunate enough to do so with the help of an experienced publisher like Take-Two". The developer is now working on the Making History Expansion for the game.
