STALKER 2 Delayed Until December This Year
STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl has now been delayed until December later this year.
STALKER 2 which is a game literally years in the making has already suffered a number of big delays. This latest delay is certainly a big blow for the developers at GSC Game World. That being said, I think we can all agree that a game should always launch in the best state possible. So, if STALKER 2 needs to be delayed, then so be it.
STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl was previously meant to release on April 28th, 2022. Furthermore, it will also launch day one on Xbox Game Pass. However, STALKER 2 will now release on December 8th, 2022.

“Stalker 2 is the biggest project in the history of GSC, and it requires thorough testing and polishing,” wrote GSC, announcing the delay. “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 expectations.”
