At the end of October 2020, the developers of the space action game Everspace 2 announced that they had to postpone the start of the early access phase due to the launch of Cyberpunk 2077. It is now clear when we can start.
The early access phase is imminent
The team behind Everspace 2 explains: "After several rounds of community testing with around 2,000 players and great feedback on the closed beta, Everspace 2 is ready for Early Access. We can't wait to hear the feedback from space game enthusiasts on Steam and GOG for the first release version. Of course the game is far from finished. In addition to the two star systems that Everspace 2 pilots can explore in Early Access, we are planning four to six more and several additional player ship subclasses beyond from Interceptor, Sentinel, Striker, Gunship and Scout, which will gradually be added quarterly. In the finished game, players will also be able to enjoy twice as much story content and many worthwhile endgame activities. We look forward to the next Working closely with our community for 12 to 18 months to create an outstanding, narrative-driven open-world space lo oter shooter to develop. "
Everspace 2 will start early access on January 18, 2021 via Steam and GOG. The version should offer around 25 hours of content. With the developers' statement, we can now foresee when the official release will take place. If the team is planning an EA phase of 12 to 18 months, then we will probably see the release of Everspace 2 in spring or summer 2022.
