Predicted Release Date for STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl

STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl is tentatively scheduled for release on December 1, 2023, as indicated by a recent listing from the distributor PLAION. However, this date isn't officially confirmed yet. The game will also be showcased at Gamescom 2023. Initially, the game was expected to be released last year, but due to the conflict in GSC Game World's home country, its development was paused. Thankfully, by summer, the team resumed work after ensuring their safety and establishing a second studio in Prague.

They've been diligently working on the game since then, creating a massive open world for players and a flexible storyline. Hopefully, a specific release date will be announced soon.
