“Slime Rancher 2 will remain in Early Access for at least 18 months, potentially longer. We have a lot of content planned for version 1.0 and beyond and are a no-crunch studio, so we will give development the time it needs to produce the high-quality experience you expect from us.”

The team is committed to having a good work-life balance and does not want the team to have to work extensive hours to ship the game. That’s why early access is a great fit for something like Slime Rancher 2. The team can take player feedback and changes and continue pushing for a 1.0 release on their own terms.

So what can folks expect from the early access launch? The team dives a little deeper into what will be available from the initial content stream.

“Slime Rancher 2 will launch into Early Access with a big world to explore, many different slimes to collect and combine, and an introduction to the game story and the mystery behind Rainbow Island. It’s a substantial graphical leap over the original and all of the content currently available is in a highly polished state.

Well, that’s everything you need to know about if Slime Rancher 2 is in early access. We will update this guide accordingly as development progresses and when the game has a 1.0 launch date. Be sure to look at if Slime Rancher 2 has co-op multiplayer.
