It appears that the official website of Stalker 2 has been blocked in Russia at the request of the Russian government. According to RIA Novosti news agency, the site has been restricted by the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation.

According to previous reports, the Ukrainian studio GSC Game World, which is currently developing the game, is in the process of moving the studio from the capital, Kyiv, to Prague due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

When visiting the official Stalker 2 website, a banner will appear encouraging visitors to support Ukraine. It indicates that the activities of the GSC Game World studio that developed the commercial game have been suspended in Russia since March 2022.

Stalker 2 is scheduled to be released in December of this year, but due to the current war in Ukraine, the development of the project has stopped completely. Studio GSC Game World posted a video on its YouTube channel in early March confirming the suspension of development for Stalker 2 and the ongoing Russian invasion of its home country.

While the video showed footage of explosions in different regions of Ukraine, the developers spoke through it, saying:

This video is our answer to the question (How are you guys doing?). We are now striving hard to help our employees and their families survive. The game evolution has switched to freeze mode. But we will definitely continue. after the victory. Glory to Ukraine.

This means that we will not see the game released on a predetermined date in December of this year. While we are waiting for new updates, in case the development process is moved to another safer place, it will ensure that developers and employees work in a safe environment.
