STALKER 2's now launching on December 8th
GSC Game World has confirmed that STALKER 2: Shadow of Chernobyl has been delayed until December 8th, seven months after the game's previously announced April 28th launch date.
STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl is a post-apocalyptic survival game that's based within the Chernobyl exclusion zone, where mutants, "anomalies", and various warring factions make everyday life a challenge. Players are STALKERs, those who enter the zone despite the risks for money or information, as there is a hidden truth that's hidden within the heart of Chernobyl.
STALKER 2 is GSC Game World's largest ever project, and the studio has reported that the game's delay was "needed to fulfil our vision and achieve the desired state of the game". Below is GSC Game World's full statement regarding STALKER 2's delay.
Stalkers, We have made a decision to postpone the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl to December 8th, 2022.
These additional seven months of development are needed to fulfill our vision and achieve the desired state of the game. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is the biggest project in the history of GSC, and it requires thorough testing and polishing. We are convinced that development should take as Fong as necessary, especially in the case of such a project.
This decision is not an easy one, but we are doing the best possible to deliver you a game that can live up to the expectations. With more information, updates and showcases coming, we have an exciting and important year ahead. Thank you for your patience and understanding. With love, GSC Game World team.
GSC Game World plans to release more information about STALKER 2 throughout this year, which hopefully means that gamers will be getting an in-depth look at the game soon.
