The Russian community has released 16 GB of STALKER 2 materials to the general public, including the world map, art, the gameplay, working materials, and other information that should not have fallen into the hands of attackers, according to Russian "insiders."
McCulkin, the community manager of GSC Game World under the moniker STALKER 2, denied all the reports and assured that the game's development is continuing. He said this on the studio's official Discord channel.
STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl is expected to be released in 2023 on PC and Xbox Series X/S. The game will be immediately available in the Xbox Game Pass library.
