S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl developer GSC Game World had some disappointing news to share this morning.
According to a letter posted by the developer, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl has been delayed to December 8, 2022. The post-apocalyptic shooter was originally slated to release months earlier, on April 28.
“These additional seven months of development are needed to fulfill our vision and achieve the desired state of the game,” GSC Game World explained in a statement. “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.”
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl will be available to play exclusively on Xbox consoles and PC when it releases this holiday.
