Stalker 2: When Can We Expect Stalker 2 To Be Released?

GSC Game World is working on a new first-person shooter called S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl. As of December 2022, it will be the fourth game in the series, the first for consoles, as well as the first in 13 years since the release of Call of Pripyat in 2009, and the first STALER game since the release of Call of Pripyat in 2009.

Call of Pripyat was supposed to be released in 2012, however it was scrapped on the year it was supposed to be released due to poor sales. When the game reappeared years later in 2018, Unreal Engine 5 and a new release date of 2022 were announced.

Stalker 2 A Child Early Life

Sergei Grigorovich, CEO of GSC Game World, announced Stalker 2 in 2010 with a release date of 2012, stating that the game would be released in 2012 “We had no doubts about moving forward with development of a new major game set in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. universe after the series’ official sales surpassed 4 million copies worldwide in 2008. A new chapter in the wildly popular game that gamers have come to rely on will be presented here.” An all-new multi-platform engine, built from scratch for Stalker 2, was promised for the game’s development.

GSC’s staff had been reduced by 75% as a result of multiple layoffs and general attrition throughout the game’s production. Due to “personal circumstances” two years later, Grigorovich had declared the abrupt halt of all work. Official dissolution of GSC Game World took place on December 9th, 2011. a tweet from the official Twitter account “To keep going, we’ll do our utmost to persevere. However, nothing is certain at this time.” A new update was given after several months of uncertainty[7], stating that production will resume after the holidays, but that it would need money. Even yet, in April 2012 on the company’s Facebook page,[9] the termination of this build of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was formally announced,[8] officially reported to have come from a conflict between investors and personnel and the original IP rights owner.

Stalker 2 Scandal surrounding The West Coast Games

In June 2014, Eugene Kim, a former GSC lead developer, began a Kickstarter campaign for a spiritual successor to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, under the name “Areal”. Though it received much criticism, this game’s trailer was constructed solely of video from the original S.T.A LOCKER games as well as reported screenshots from its development, which West Games acknowledged was “media-fabricated,” based on the “asset store” that was used in the Unity engine.

In July, Kickstarter permanently stopped the project due to alleged guideline breaches, despite the fact that it had raised $65,000 on Kickstarter, $15,000 more than its initial $50,000 target. Though West Games initially claimed to have converted to private funding on their website, in December 2014 they declared a considerably higher target of $600,000 to build a new game called Stalker Apocalypse via a crowdfunding campaign on the Wfunder platform.
