Save KSP2 - An Open Letter to Take-Two and CEO Strauss Zelnick

Dear Mr. Zelnick,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to you as a dedicated member of the Kerbal Space Program (KSP) community, a group that shares an unparalleled passion for space exploration and engineering, and whose enthusiasm for the franchise has only grown since the original game’s release. I am deeply concerned about the recent decision to cancel Kerbal Space Program 2 (KSP2), a game with enormous potential that deserves another chance to succeed under the right circumstances.

Kerbal Space Program has cultivated a large and dedicated community that spans across all ages, particularly inspiring young minds to delve into the wonders of space travel and engineering. The game’s unique blend of education and entertainment has not only provided countless hours of enjoyment but has also sparked an interest in STEM fields for many children and young adults. The cancellation of KSP2 is not just a loss for the fans but a missed opportunity to continue fostering this educational impact.

The challenges KSP2 has faced since its announcement can largely be attributed to mismanagement by Take-Two and Private Division. Despite these setbacks, the core vision and potential of the game remain intact. The issues are not with the concept or the community’s enthusiasm but with the execution and oversight of the project. With the right management and development team, KSP2 can overcome its current hurdles and achieve the greatness that the community knows it is capable of.

Reconsidering the cancellation of KSP2 and investing in proper management and resources will not only save the game but also reinforce Take-Two’s commitment to its community and the educational value it brings. A revitalized KSP2 can reignite the interest of the next generation in space exploration and engineering, aligning perfectly with the growing global focus on these fields. The benefits of nurturing such interests extend beyond gaming, potentially leading to future innovations and advancements as inspired players pursue careers in STEM disciplines.

The KSP community stands ready to support and contribute to the game’s success. Our passion and dedication are unwavering, and we believe that with the right leadership, KSP2 can become a landmark title that continues to inspire and educate.

I kindly urge you to reconsider the decision to cancel Kerbal Space Program 2. Invest in the right team and management, and you will see not only a successful game but also a legacy that inspires future generations.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
