The developer of STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl, studio GSC Game World, explained the sudden disappearance of the game from the official Xbox store. This is reported by the Player One portal with a link to the project’s official Discord server.
Earlier, social media users noticed that the pre-order for STALKER 2 suddenly disappeared. As it turned out, the rules set by Microsoft in their store are to blame.
“According to the rules of the Xbox store, until we announce the exact release date, pre-orders will not resume. As soon as the date is publicly known, the pre-order button will be available to you again, ”said a representative of GSC Game World.
The release of STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl is scheduled for 2023. The Steam service lists December of the following year as the release date.
