Recently at Gamescom 2019, Rockfish Games, the creators of Everspace, announced Everspace 2. Unlike the rogue-like prequel, this game is an open-world space shooter with classic role-playing elements and persistent player progression. Everspace 2 was coming to Steam Early Access soon and Xbox One in 2021. Unfortunately, that doesn't appear to be the case anymore.
A press release Windows Central received from the developer said the following.
Hopefully, Everspace 2 will be a polished experience even in Steam Early Access. It's unclear if this means that the Xbox One launch of the game will be pushed back further in 2021 or even 2022. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
