GSC Game World has announced that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl is being delayed until December 8, 2022. According to the brief explanation via Twitter, developers need more time to “fulfill our vision” and to make the kind of game that fans of the long-running series expect.
We’ve 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 long 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.
