The postponement of the release date of STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl to December 8, 2022 was sudden, if somewhat predictable. The developers reassured fans of the game and told the details about the transfer in the official Discord servers.
One of the important announcements was that the NFT has nothing to do with the postponement. The developers would not have had time to bring STALKER 2 to an ideal state in four months. A later release date will allow the team to polish the game, implement everything planned and work on it more.
The developers are well aware if users decide to cancel the pre-order, and are ready to meet halfway.
Unfortunately, so far we have not been shown the gameplay in STALKER 2, the development team asked the players to be patient and assured that they would show the gameplay when necessary.
