After the very good reception and financial success of the first part of STALKER, the Ukrainian creators focus on preparing the next production. GSC Game World broke the silence and shared three new photos showing parts of the Zona.
The unjustified aggression of Russia has a significant influence on the creation of the new version of STALKER. After production was delayed by several months, the Ukrainian studio had to face huge problems again – all because of the war taking place in the developers’ homeland, which forced the team to leave the workplace and fight for safety. The game is still being developed, but some employees decided to fight for Ukraine – during the June Xbox Games Showcase Extended we could see the new realities of their lives.
In the latest post on social media, GSC Game World showed three takes from Zona received in a very disturbing and dark atmosphere. The team does not reveal much, presenting non-characteristic photos showing the effects of work on Unreal Engine 5.
So far, we have not known the official release date of STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl, which is currently dated to 2023 – as we can guess, a lot depends on the further living conditions of the developers. Responding to the players’ comments, the Ukrainian team thanked them for their support, which is very valuable to them at the moment.
