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.

Below Zero is more of a expansion turned into a full game. That I lost interest in after 30 hours or so.

I really had to force myself through that one. I think the isolation of the first Subnautica is what drew me to it, and BZ's addition of other characters you communicate with (correct me if I'm wrong) sort of spoiled that for me. The world also felt a bit smaller and more restricted.

It wasn't terrible, but I much preferred the original.
