Take-Two Acquires Kerbal Space Program

Popular indie space game Kerbal Space Program has been picked up by Take-Two, the parent company of Rockstar Games and 2K. According to Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick, this acquisition includes the game's developer.

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.- Zelnick
Kerbal Space Program became available as an Early Access title on Steam in March 2013. It officially launched in April 2015 and has since reached PS4 and Xbox One.
Squad, the developer, says this "doesn't change much for the KSP community." It has confirmed free DLC will continue to be offered to early buyers and that work is still going to take place on the game.
