Microsoft has started refunding STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl pre-orders for Xbox Series X|S . A message from the platform holder appeared on the network with the following content:
“Thank you for pre-ordering STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl. The release date for this game has changed to an unconfirmed date in the future. Because of this, the pre-order was canceled and you were refunded the funds spent. Additional information regarding a future release date for this product will be available at Xbox.com.”
In a conversation with the DTF editors, GSC Game World confirmed that this is a standard decision for the publisher after postponing the game to 2023 without an exact release date. The studio emphasized that later the shooter can be pre-ordered again.
Initially, STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl was supposed to be released on April 28, 2022, but the game was first postponed to December 8, and later to 2023, without specifying an exact date.
The shooter is going to be released on PC, Xbox Series X|S and Game Pass.
