There has been a lot of speculation as to whether a particular Star Atlas faction would have certain advantages or disadvantages in terms of manning the starships.

Weekly Star Atlas Newsletter #73

The first quarter of 2023 came and went without any substantial releases from the team. Many held hope of seeing the SAGE: Movement Test and/or the Claim Stakes R4 production (for SCORE) in March, but with that month having come to an end, we now expect to see these in Q2 of 2023 instead. These two releases will join Showroom 2.1, which was already targeting Q2. And let’s not forget about the Mobile Companion app, which, according to leaked documents, was targeted for Q1, but which might now be launched in Q2 as well. In short, the second quarter of 2023 could become the action-packed month we really need!

And then, there is one more thing to (potentially) look forward to, coupled with the Movement Test. The team will launch an immersive social campaign. Nothing about it was shared, however, so we’ll have to wait and see what this will entail.
