S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl is set to launch on Microsoft Windows and the Xbox Series X/S platforms. It marks the fourth installment in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, as well as the series’ debut on consoles. Notably, it also breaks a 13-year hiatus in the series, as the last release, Call of Pripyat, was back in 2009. The game was originally delayed by the developer to December, 2022. It appears that it will finally see the light of day an additional year after the intended release date.

Initially revealed in the aftermath of Call of Pripyat’s launch, the game was initially slated for a 2012 release. Those plans were shelved, however, and the game was officially canceled in the same year it was meant to launch. Several years later, S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2: Heart of Chornobyl made a resurgence in 2018. Its development was re-initiated, this time powered by Unreal Engine 5. As mentioned earlier, the game was originally slated to hit store shelves on December 8, 2022. However, due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, development was temporarily halted. The development team later communicated through their official Discord server that work on S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2: Heart of Chornobyl was ongoing, and the game is targeting a release in 2023. It looks like we finally have a concrete release date.

Players will engage in a branching cinematic story within a local post-apocalyptic dark science fiction landscape. The gameplay is a blend of first-person shooter, immersive sim, and horror mechanics. Survival depends on scavenging for essential supplies like food, drinks, and meds to withstand harsh conditions, as well as dealing with unnatural hazards and hostile locals.
