Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl has been delayed to Q1 2024. The game was originally scheduled to be released in December 2023, but the developer, GSC Game World, has said that they need more time to polish the game.
The delay is understandable, given the circumstances. GSC Game World had to relocate their studio from Kyiv, Ukraine to Prague, Czech Republic due to the ongoing war in Ukraine. The war has also had a negative impact on the game’s development, as it has been difficult for the team to work together and communicate effectively.
Despite the delay, GSC Game World has said that they are committed to making Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl the best game it can be. They have also said that they will be providing more updates on the game’s development in the coming months.
