GaaS Subnautica 2 This Year?

GameWatcher translates details from Krafton's financial reporting on plans for Subnautica 2, the upcoming submerged action sequel from Unknown Worlds. A report last year said this should be expected in 2025, but this latest update says the game will launch this year with co-op support as one of those games as a service that everyone loves so much:
Subnautica 2 is being developed with Unreal Engine 5, adopting a Game as a Service model. Players will explore an "oceanic world in stunning stylized graphics.".

The report indicates that the game will feature a single-player mode, or players can team up with friends for a 4-player co-op session to "uncover the mysteries on an entirely new alien planet."

Subnautica 2 is scheduled for release in 2024. Currently, details are scarce, with no screenshots or gameplay footage available yet.

The first game spent about three years in early access, gathering feedback and being improved. Below Zero spent about two years in early access. This one is (supposedly) less than a year away, GaaS monetized, and no one's seen as much as a screenshot? If that's not a sign of guaranteed quality, I don't know what is.

At least it's a good reminder to give Subnautica a replay.
