Stalker 2 is a bit of one of the most anticipated titles for single-player FPS enthusiasts. Since its announcement, it has not ceased to spill a lot of ink. It will flow a little more with this sad announcement.
Sad news in January 2022: STALKER 2 is postponed for 7 (long) months. We will now have to wait for the December 8, 2022 to be able to “walk” in the Zone. The announcement was made via the game’s Twitter account:
We have made the decision to postpone the release of STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl until December 8, 2022.
These additional seven months of development are necessary to realize our vision and achieve the state of finish we want for the game. STALKER 2 is the biggest project in GSC history and it takes more testing and checking to perfect it.
It’s not an easy decision to make, but we’re doing our best to deliver a game that meets your expectations.
More information, updates and presentations are to come. An important and passionate year looms before us. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
With love, the GSC Game World team.
For a better STALKER 2?
It’s always a little sad to see a highly anticipated game postponed for so many months. We can always be reassured by hoping to avoid a repetition of the rather hazardous launch of the first episode. An episode that still remains in the anal for its very large number of bugs and problems of all kinds …
STALKER 2 is planned for PC and Xbox Series initially. It should appear later (in 2023, a priori) on PlayStation 5.
