The recent 2023 financial report of the publisher Krafton revealed the listing of games planned for future releases. Among the games mentioned was Subnautica 2. The listing mentioned that Subnautica 2 would be developed in the Unreal 5 engine and would feature a 4-player multiplayer mode and a single-player.

The financial report's listing mentions 2024 as a possible release date for Subnautica 2. The statement from the developers, Unknown Worlds Enternainment, denied that early access will be available in 2024, which makes 2025 a possible release year. The details about the game are scarce, as we don't have any official trailer or gameplay material.

The biggest controversy in the Subnautica 2 report concerned the mention of the "Games as a Service" model the game will reportedly have, which many fans didn't take very well.

The negative reactions were so passionate Unknown Worlds Entertainment released a statement addressing the controversy:

"In reference to “Games-as-a-Service, we simply plan to continually update the game for many years to come, just like the previous two Subnautica games. Think our Early Access update model, expanded. No season passes. No battle passes. No subscription."

The Unknown Worlds Entertainment mentioned that the game will not be multiplayer-oriented. Multiplayer will be just an option, and the main feature will be a single-player campaign. They also thanked the players for their support and said they would do their best to deliver the best game possible.
