We've made a decision to postpone the release of
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl to December 8th, 2022.
These additional seven months of development are needed to fulfill our vision
and achieve the desired state of the game. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is the biggest
project in the history of GSC, and it requires thorough testing and polishing.
We are convinced that development should take as long as necessary, especially

and showcases coming, we have an exciting and important year ahead. Thank you
for your patience and understanding.
With love, GSC Game World team.
