Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl has been delayed to December 8th for Xbox Series X|S, Steam and Epic Games Store. Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl was originally planned to release on April 28th. GSC Game World states that the extra 7 months of development will help the team further test/polish the game. Here’s what the developers had to say:
We have made a decision to postpone the release of Stalker 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. Stalker 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 was 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.
