To nobody’s surprise GSC Game World has just postponed (again) premiere of Stalker 2. For about 7 months...
Like every self-centered a-hole, I just love to say "I told you so", so I will - I told you so in this article, this article and even in this one that, especially after Cyberpunk 2077 premiere failure, you should really take every information about new titles with pinch of salt. And I’m afraid I was absolutely right. Well, not "afraid", "smug" would be the right word.
Officially Stalker 2 will be postponed so the project could be thoroughly tested and polished, premiere was moved from 28th April to 8th December 2022. To be fair, the game originally was hinted to premiere in 2021, but who counts years when it comes to modern games, right?
To sum up - after over (at least) a year of development there is no in-game footage, there are no in-game screenshots, there are no gameplay details, the only available info refers to pre-purchase options and now the premiere was pushed back 7 months... Cyberpunk 2077, hold my beer, it’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
Post-apocalyptic survival for dummies
Due to Russian aggression on Ukraine the development of Stalker 2, a highly anticipated sequel to Stalker series games, has been suspended.
GSC Game World presented a brand new Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl trailer, which introduced us to... dozens of shades of darkness. Literally. And that’s about it.
We just gained some details of the upcoming Stalker 2 (or rather S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2) game, but it is scarce info to be honest. And that makes me fear it will be a failure on premiere. Here is why...
This news creates mixed feelings in me - I want to make a smug face and repeat "I told you so!" and at the same time I wish this news was not true. Yes, it is Stalker 2 again. Yes, it’s bad news again. No, I’m not surprised. During the Gamescom 2023 a new trailer of the title was shown and... let’s just say it wasn’t received well.
One of my favourite quotes from Mystery Science Theater 3000 is "he came, he changed nobody’s life and then he left", which pretty much describes what happened to Cyberpunk 2077. Again.
Abermore, one of the dozens, if not hundreds, of titles that premiered in recent days on Steam made me think that the end of an era is near. Yes, you guessed it, Abermore is a steaming pile of garbage. To be fair it is not the only one and not the worst one that I have seen recently.
Cyberpunk 2077, new game from CD Projekt Red studio, premiered on 10th December 2020 and, just like rest of the year 2020, it was a painful experience. Although after about 8 years in production devel...
