The production of the shooter STALKER 2 allegedly stalled due to the fact that about half of the development team left the GSC Game World studio after the start of a special operation in Ukraine. This is reported by the publication IXBT.games , which talked to people familiar with the status of the project.
Insiders also pointed to a problem in the person of the head of the studio Sergey Grigorovich , who allegedly does not maintain detailed documentation on STALKER 2. As a result, newcomers hired to replace the departed are forced to make some elements of the shooter from scratch or completely rework.
According to preliminary data, more or less GSC Game World managed to complete only the intro, the rest of STALKER 2 is in a state of “permanent repair”. And if the new hires also decide to jump off the project, it only creates additional difficulties.
According to the most optimistic forecast, the game will supposedly be released only in 2024-2025.
