As we wave goodbye to the teens, I think we can say that it was a hell of a good decade for this genre although it did get off to a slow start, it picked up in the last 8 years. Two new types of games were add in the form of the bridge simulator and the rogue like game and although many games may never be finished, their has been a greater push by developer in what the player can do within the games.  Will it continue or will we see a slow down in the games releases over the next ten years and will see any the big developer dipping a toe into the genre, who knows, but I guess we will find out.

Hyperventila: The Game
A 2d space RPG out on the 6th of Fed, very little Infor about the game as the description on Steam is very short.

Website https://www.hyperventila.com/

Take on the role of a starship captain thrown into an extraordinary situation.
When three time travellers mysteriously appear on your ship with unusual abilities, you can help them or use them. One thing is certain,
their powers will allow you to shape and reshape the face of the Hyperventila galaxy.
These initial events will put you at the centre of a political power struggle. You hold the key to the future of the galaxy.
You have complete freedom to choose its fate as you conquer, discuss or trade your way to greater influence.

Pilot your own starship

Explore space stations and planets

A whole galaxy at your mercy

 

Out There Oceans Of Time

Is the sequel to Out There, this time in 3d and by the sound of it you are one doing the chasing rather than
being chased which has become standard in these FTL/rogue like games.

http://oceansoftime.outtheregame.com/

In a far-flung corner of the universe where humans are a disdained minority, you were entrusted with transporting the most dangerous being alive
to an impregnable prison—and it escaped.
Now you must lead a team of explorers, misfits, and bounty hunters on a galaxy-spanning mission of redemption to find the Archon and recapture it before it is too late.

In Search of a Home

Already out on Steam for a couple of months now, this is 2D rogue-like space exploration game. Looks a bit on the basic side but may improve over time.

In Search of a Home (ISH) is a strategy rogue-like space exploration game where you lead a small fleet of ships and people out into unknown galaxies to find a new home.
With your resources and population dwindling, you must do your best to balance the morale of your fleet, curry favour with different factions, research new technologies,
and explore the galaxy for resources. Not everyone will make it to your new home, and not everything is essential.
You’ll have to make hard choices to keep the fleet united on your mission to find a planet to call home.

Starpoint Gemini 3
Already in early access and is a departure from the capital ship gameplay of the previous games and going for more of the classic Elite gameplay this time around.

Ever Space 2 Again another sequal which is going for the classic Elite gameplay but may fall flat on iit's face it uses the same FPS control from the first game.

EVERSPACE™ 2 is a fast-paced single-player space shooter with deep exploration, tons of loot and classic RPG elements. Experience a thrilling story set in a vivid,

Gears of Eden
Bit of a odd one as you are in control of a robot on a asteroid and their is a demo that can be tryed out.

Ostranauts
Been following this for a while and it might not appeal to everyone but I think it will be one the more intresting games this year.

Website https://bluebottlegames.com/games/ostranauts

Ostranauts is a detailed simulation of owning and living aboard a spaceship, in a solar system where honest living is a slow death sentence.
Set in the NEO Scavenger universe, where Earth has suffered cataclysmic collapse, the rest of the System lives on in a state of capitalistic dystopia.

Players will create their captain, build or customize their starting ship from the spoils of their career history, and find ways to keep their motley crew in line,
fuel in their tanks, food on their plates, and the debt collectors at bay.

Kerbal Space Program 2
Mor mayhen fro the Kerbals as you try a build a space programe to explore the galaxy.

Website https://www.kerbalspaceprogram.com/

Kerbal Space Program 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed space flight simulation game Kerbal Space Program from Star Theory and Private Division.

With the original Kerbal Space Program having become one of the most beloved games of all time and now bigger than ever, Kerbal Space Program 2 has been
fully redesigned from the ground up to meet the demands of modern and next-generation space exploration, all while maintaining the monumental foundations of the first game.

ILL Space
Looks to be a sim /RTS space station game.

Website https://illspace.com/

Welcome, Candidate.

You are aboard the Interstellar Longhaul Logistics capital trade nexus.

Here, Commanders are sent deep into space to set up outposts and mine asteroids for precious metals. These enterprises are extremely
expensive and also come at a high-risk - not everyone makes it back. And, sometimes, those who do, speak of unimaginable cosmic horrors and utter destruction.
What long was thought as a myth, as an anomaly in long range field scanners, has proven to be true.

I just ran across a couple of them recently and I do like the look of Hyperventila as it's reminds me of the old 16bit space RPG.

Hyperventila and Ill Space look pretty good too me, from your list. I would have to dig into the posts but I think there is some others that could be out in 2020.
