The Ukrainian YouTube blogger OLDboi reported that GSC Game World plans to postpone the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl from the 28 of April to the fall of 2022.

According to DOU Gamedev, the studio’s community managers and PR representatives have not responded to reporters’ inquiries. However, other studio sources have hinted that the game will indeed not be released this spring.

  • According to OLDboi, the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl, which was planned to be released on April 28, 2022, on PC and Xbox Series X/S, will be postponed until the fall of 2022.
  • At the same time, the developers already have plans to release the game for PlayStation 5, which should appear in late 2022 or early 2023 (just 3-4 months after the release of the game for PC and Xbox Series X/S).
  • The developers may not confirm the delay until early spring in order to rack up more pre-order sales, according to the source.
  • The Ukrainian game development company GSC Game World has announced that it started working on a sequel to its legendary game – S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 in May 2018. Now there were not many details about the game. Since the announcement, the studio has published several trailers and unveiled some information.
