S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl Delayed

A tweet from GSC Game World announces a delay to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl. The message, in the form of an image to thwart Twitter's limits and web crawlers, says the first-person shooter sequel is now expected on December 8, 2022, though a specific time goes unmentioned. Here's the announcement:
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 in the case of such a project.

This decision is not an easy one, but we are doing the best possible to deliver you a game that can live up to the expectations. With more information, updates and showcases coming, we have an exciting and important year ahead. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

With love, GSC Game World team.
