Why is GSC Game World Delaying Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl?
GSC Game World has been working on some interesting ideas for Stalker 2: Heart of Chernobyl. For instance, GSC Game World announced their plans for NFT character NPCs. Yet that plan fell through very quickly as players reacted negatively and GSC Game World abandoned the idea. Seeing how the community responded, it’s clear why they pulled the plug no sooner than a few days later. While they only state that they are using the time to reach their desired state for launch, there could be a multitude of reasons. Delaying a game can have significant ramifications for the studio. With more development and advertising being spent, recuperating costs becomes difficult. Despite this, GSC Game World is taking the time to ensure a great experience come December.
