Until the last E3, STALKER 2: The Heart of Chernobyl was a relatively discreet title for many years. On the occasion of the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2021, the Ukrainian studio GSC Game World presented a 5-minute trailer to finally reveal the release date of this long-awaited game: April 28, 2022 on Xbox Series X & PC. But while it was thought that the game would only be available in dematerialized form through Steam and the Epic Game Store on PC, and through Xbox Game Pass on Xbox Series and PC, Distributor Koch Media announced today that the title is also eligible for physical release.
