Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar and 2K Games, has announced that it has acquired Kerbal Space Program.
Take-Two shared the news today in a press release, with CEO Strauss Zelnick confirming that the IP is included as part of the deal, saying, “It’s just another example of our desire to build up our collection of owned intellectual property. This is an opportunity to buy a title that’s already successful, it’s sold in roughly 2 million units, still in market, still selling on Steam. There’ll be more additional content packs coming. And we think it’s a great addition to the stable of intellectual property, and it fits within our independent games initiative, which is an area we don’t talk about much, but it’s an area of increasing focus.”
Kerbal Space Program debuted back in 2013, on Early Access and officially launched on PC in 2015, it is also now available on PlayStation and Xbox.
