The entries on the following list must be properly cited to ensure verifiability.

The features listed here are planned for future versions of Kerbal Space Program and may change during the course of development.

This list is not an official road-map for KSP. It is maintained by the community, and has no direct relation to what may or may not be included in the final product. Already implemented features can be found in the version history.

Future features

Current version: 1.11.1

This section lists all planned features for future releases. Entries highlighted in blue are planned for the next update. Entries in yellow have been partially implemented. Entries in green are already in development but are not expected for the next update or are so huge that there are multiple updates incrementally adding that feature. Orange is for the questionable features - had pros and cons, or simply unconfirmed.

The entries on the list are not a commitment, and the developer team is not under any obligation to implement them all. These features may be pushed back or implemented on another way then suggested here, or cancelled altogether.

The next major version is expected to be 1.12
