Fans of the STALKER franchise now also have bad news. Like many other games in the past two years, STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl, originally scheduled for release on April 28, 2022, has now been postponed to December 8 roll out. “In order to realize our vision and bring the game into the desired state, an additional 7 months of development time is necessary.” The developer GSC Game World wrote in a statement, “Havoc 2 is GSC’s work to date. The most important projects, it takes more time to test and polish.”
GSC promises to share more information about Havoc 2 in the next few months. After its release, it will first land on the Xbox Series X/S and PC platforms. It is said that Microsoft will enjoy a 3-month exclusivity period. Recently, GSC has been criticized a lot for considering the incorporation of NFT elements in this work, but fortunately, they quickly canceled the relevant plans under the backlash.
