S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 has been pushed back to 2024

It would be an enormous understatement to suggest that the development of Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl was difficult. Another postponement has been made for the impending survival horror game.

GSC Game World announced through a press briefing that the game is coming early next year.

GSC Game World announced through a press briefing that the game is coming early next year.

The developer of Stalker 2, GSC Game World, recently released a press kit for the game that gave fans an overview of what to anticipate from the next horror shooter. The game will contain aspects of a first-person shooter, immersive sim, and horror game, according to the company. In the next game, players will use 30 different weaponry that they can personalize and enhance to survive tactical gunfights. The Unreal 5 engine will also be used to create the game’s spectacular aesthetics.

Although Stalker 2 will release in the first quarter of 2024, GSC published this information towards the bottom of the press kit. The game’s release date is not specified in any way. The pre-orders are currently accessible on the game’s official website, Steam, and GOG, thus the release window is good.

Stalker 2 will launch on Xbox Game Pass on day one and will only be accessible on PC and Xbox. Players on the PlayStation 5 should anticipate the game to release a little later as the timed console exclusivity is only expected to last for three months.

A fresh trailer for Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl was also made available by GSC. The survival horror game’s locations and weapons were seen in the one and a half-minute trailer. The teaser also featured an abnormality that seemed to instantly demolish objects.

At Gamescom 2023, Stalker 2 was also present, and the developer provided a demo that could be played. However, the majority of those present at the event did not have positive things to say about the game’s playable demo. The majority of users who discussed the game on the Gaming Leaks and Rumors subreddit concur that it could require a bit more time to be refined.

They attempted to reduce the open world game to a problematic quest led (sp) demo for the Gamescom, userH3x0n posted, “(The) Stalker 2 demo at Gamescom was running on a pc at the xbox booth (instead of using anXbox). It crashed, had bugs that broke the game, and texture problems.

“So it’s good for them to delay it to next year,” the user continues. I’m hoping they can fix the few minor flaws before the release and avoid going cyberpunk.

The current conflict between Russia and Ukraine should be expected to cause delays in the release of Stalker 2. When the conflict began, the studio was forced to halt game development and relocate its production staff to Prague. The studio has received support from the game’s audience, and they are eagerly awaiting the release of the game.

Will the early 2019 release of Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl occur? Of course, we hope so. Having stated that, GSC Game World is free to take as much time as necessary to create a game that matches the quality of the series.
