Usually GSC Game World does not comment on such rumors, but given the “absurdity of the information” about the postponement of the release of STALKER 2 to 2024-2025, the Ukrainian studio decided to make an exception and clarify the situation – the release of the continuation of the cult Ukrainian shooter is still scheduled for 2023 .
Rumors that GSC Game World seems to have postponed STALKER 2 to 2024-2025 were dismissed by Vitaly Kazunov, editor-in-chief of the Russian site iXBT Games. Actually, there is nothing particularly surprising here – as you know, GSC Game World has a clear pro-Ukrainian position and the studio has been helping the country significantly since the first days of the war. Previously, Game World completely stopped sales of all its games in Russia, including STALKER 2, and also abandoned the Russian localization of the game.
