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 is coming to Steam Early Access in December and should hit Xbox One in 2021. However, this timeline may change given the coronavirus outbreak.
While Everspace was a good experience, it didn't allow you to explore planets. Luckily, Everspace 2 fixes that. Today, a press release Windows Central received said the following. It discusses the benefits of having preset planets instead of procedural generation.
It's a shame there won't be endless planets like No Man's Sky, but quality is better than quantity. We can't wait to get our hands on Everspace 2 later this year, and can't wait to see how it looks on the Xbox Series X.

Nice. This is sounding better and better.
I've only played Everspace a little, but it's quite enjoyable. Adding Planets into the mix I wonder whether it will retain the Roquelike elements or it will shift to a game style akin to No Man's Sky.
I think they said a while back on one of the first articles its going to be a different type of game.
