S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 gets its first in-game teaser
S.T.A.L.K.E.R Shadow of the Chernobyl was released in 2007. Nearly 13 years later the company is finally ready to unveil the fourth game in the franchise.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 will follow Call of Prypyat which was released in 2009. The company had already announced S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 back in 2010, but the game was eventually canceled in 2012. Six years later the company confirmed that the development on the game has been restarted.
The game uses Unreal Engine 4, which was revealed by Sergey Galyonkin (who also coincidentally appeared recently in our Epic Games Launcher coverage). The game is now confirmed to launch for the PC and Xbox X and S consoles, there will be no PlayStation version from what it seems.
The game will feature next-generation graphics, but the support for technologies such as raytracing has not yet been confirmed. S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 does not have a release date yet, but the game was already confirmed to launch next year.
Get your first in-engine look at the first-person sequel S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 and its Zone through the eyes of its main protagonist, Skif. As developer GSC Game World puts it, this teaser represents “how the game actually feels: fast-paced change of scenery, ominous landscapes and the ever-present feeling of an inevitable danger accompanied by a barely-distinguishable guitar soundtrack.” S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is due for release at some point in 2021 on Xbox Series X|S (day one on Xbox Game Pass) and PC.
