S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Delayed

A fact sheet on the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Website indicates a delay to GSC Game World's first-person shooter sequel into 2024 (thanks Wccftech). The previous word was that the irradiated first-person shooter sequel would finally arrive this year. According to the fact sheet the launch is pushed out to Q1 of next year:
S.TA.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl releases on PC and Xbox Series X/S in QI 2024. The game will be available on Game Pass day one, and pre-orders are opened on our website, as well as on Steam and GOG. Pre-order of physical editions available on official website

I fear the same. From the footage we have seen thus far, I worry that what we will be receiving will be a scripted, linear FPS, and not the mod-friendly, open world STALKER we all know and love.

Delaying it every quarter won't make people happy, just be honest and say that you need another 2 years or so. That's better.

It would also be truthful to remind people that they are a Ukrainian company that was/is based in Kyiv...that has been heavily bombarded. Anyone with an ounce of sense would go "Oh, yeah, guess it would be hard to finish a game in the middle of your country's war for its very survival."

BoP, to quote myself:

Okay?

Right? Like saying: "Guys, thanks to Russia invading our country and attacking us and all of the Western nations trying to first outwait the war and then to hand us over almost only outdated military material they had in their scrapyards and then telling us to go all attack without having aerial superiority and with THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of mines in front of us, that Russia was able to work on because we got no support to defend us more actively last year, we just got other problems to solve. So, to be honest, we won't be able to finish this in a year. Thx to Russia, it will be two years, maybe even more. Slava Ukraini."

This would be honest and would get them more goodwill then "Moved to Q1/24. And then Q3/24. And then..."

Ukraine got a bigger problem to solve than releasing S2. I know. They just should say so to make people understand.

I'm really skeptical about this turning out to be a good game. I'll be very surprised if it isn't a broken mess....also still not a fan of calling it Chornnobyl, just sounds weird. I'll never be able to call it that personally.

AFAIK it's pronounced the same whether you spell it with an 'e' or 'o.' Using the traditional spelling rather than the globalized one is just them putting their pride for Ukraine right on the face of their product.

It wouldn't be a Stalker game if it weren't delayed at least a couple times. The original was released 6 years after it was first announced. It was also one of my favourite games of all time. The AI gave it endless replayability - I'd replay the same section over and over and it would play out differently each time.

Nope. Not even then. People who played it at Gamescom said that there is no way that S2 gets released in 2024. It is right now in a very early alpha state. But this is alright: take all the time you need, developers. Just don't push it out early. It would be nice to hear a realistic release date though. Delaying it every quarter won't make people happy, just be honest and say that you need another 2 years or so. That's better.
