QUOTE:
"Hello everyone,

We have very exciting news to share with the KSP community today: Take-Two Interactive has purchased Kerbal Space Program. The important thing to know is that this big news doesn’t change much for the KSP community. Squad and the current development team is still here and we’re hard at work on KSP and its future updates, but now we are fortunate enough to do so with the help of an experienced publisher like Take-Two, and we couldn’t be more excited and happy to see where our conjoint collaboration will take KSP forward.

Right now, we’re still focused on the Kerbal Space Program: Making History Expansion and we’ll continue to keep you updated on our progress. And yes, we’re keeping our promise of free DLC for everyone who purchased KSP through April 2013! We’re continuing to work closely with Blitworks on the updated version of KSP for consoles, which will be available on the Xbox and PSN digital stores when it is complete. This will be a free update for anyone who already owns KSP on Xbox or PS4. We can’t wait for you to play what we’ve been working on in the coming months!

This is a very exciting time for KSP and the Community, and we hope you’re as thrilled as we are. The team at Take-Two are big fans of KSP, who have been persistently knocking on our door trying to work with us for a long time. They share your passion for the game and we’re really eager to see what Squad and Take-Two can do together for Kerbal Space Program moving forward!

Happy launchings!

-The KSP Development Team"



My immediate reaction upon reading this news was not a positive one. I have to admit, I've become somewhat cynical about the way the big publishers do business, probably to the point of having a knee-jerk negative response when they come up. So this announcement triggered that reaction. In reality I have no idea if this will eventually be a good or a bad thing.
Well, they get better funding, so its good. But I hope, this does not lead in taking KSP off from GOG and strip of Linux version, that would be bad.
I hope this does well for the devs, but I was waiting for a 50% off to re-buy it here.
Now I am left wondering if I might end up leaving it too late? I know I will still have the Steam copy, but I would like DRM-free.
There is high probability in the air that Take Two will fill it future versions of KSP with either:
- microtransactions, and/or
- micro DLCs
There is also a chance of it getting DRM. Which together increases probability for it to be removed from GOG and probably loose (at least) Linux support.
