Everspace 2 announced that the upcoming PC and console title will have its Kickstarter campaign postponed. Shifting to October 2nd, 2019, the Early Access phase of Everspace 2 is scheduled for the end of 2020, with the full PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One versions scheduled for the second half of 2021. The demo version of Everspace 2 will be available for eligible backers via Steam, shortly after the campaign ends, on November 4th, 2019.
Michael Schade, CEO of ROCKFISH Games discusses this change:
“At gamescom and Pax West, over 1500 space game fans played the EVERSPACE™ 2 demo and were all enthusiastic about it. That’s why we decided to exhibit at the Tokyo Game Show at the German Pavilion at short notice, too. We will then incorporate the feedback into the finalization of the reward tiers and stretch goals of the Kickstarter campaign. In addition, we want to polish the demo a bit more and add graphic options to support a wide range of gaming PCs, so that our backers can get into exciting space battles later this year”.
