S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was revealed at the Xbox show but the game is far from done and the developer suggested later in 2021 it will be ready.
Founded in 1995, GSC Game World is based in Kiev who has become the most renowned game development studio in Ukraine and a leading developer in Europe. Since 2004 the proprietary worldwide publishing branch has been operating within the company.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 originally started back in 2010 with a custom engine. This did not get far and after a few years the Unreal 4 engine was selected and development resumed sporadically before the focus was firm.
Many of the staff from S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl went off to form 4A who developed Metro 2033 which was very well received.
The game is designed as a new open world first person shooter. It’s a unique blend of FPS, immersive sim and horror with a really thick atmosphere. One of the biggest open-worlds to date is yours to explore — along with an epic branching story with multiple endings.
The game will have a simultaneous release on PC and Xbox Series X. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will also enter Xbox Game Pass on console on day one.
The game will feature an epic, non-linear story. Your choices will influence both short-term consequences and global outcomes.
