Four years ago, a small indie dev named Squad embarked on a journey to create Kerbal Space Program
. It already had a successful Steam launch, and today we've got confirmation the game will come to consoles in July. If you're unfamiliar with the game, it's a realistic space launch simulator where you send Kerbals (aliens) into space.
Squad's CEO Ezequiel Ayarza had this to say about the release:
Following the huge success Kerbal Space Program has had on PC with players and critics alike, we want to give console players the opportunity to play Kerbal Space Program in this redefined user experience. It has been a long road but finally we are confident of the quality of the game on consoles. An awesome control experience awaits you, as well as easier access to the wonderful world of space exploration, where even exploding is a lot of fun. We invite everyone to enjoy the excitement of flying rockets built by yourself, landing on planets and much more!Kerbal Space Program
will launch in July for Xbox One.
