S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 has taken over the news of video games in recent weeks for various topics such as its controversy with NFTs or the rumor that the sequel to one of the most beloved works of worship by PC players was going to be delayed until the next fall.
Precisely this rumor has turned out to be true, since a few minutes ago the creators of the game, GSC Game World, officially announced that STALKER 2 will be delayed until December 8, about 7 months later than its original release date, which until today was scheduled for April 28.
“We have made the decision to postpone the release of STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl until December 8, 2022.“We can read in the official statement published on social networks.”These 7 months of extra development are necessary to match our vision and achieve the desired state of the game.. STALKER 2 is the largest project in our history and requires extensive testing and optimization. We are convinced that development should last as long as necessary, especially in the case of this project“.
“It was not an easy decision, but we are doing our best to give you the game that meets your expectations.“, they commented before closing the statement, pointing out that they will give us more information about the game soon.
Survival mechanics and anomalies will be present again in this installment.
Two of the things that conquered the fans of the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. it was the survival mechanics (which were not as common as now at that time) and the climatic anomalies caused by the nuclear catastrophe. Both characteristics will continue to be present in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 And, for example, hunger can affect our abilities while if we do not sleep our eyesight deteriorates in an obvious way.
