The russian invasion in ukraine It is one of the saddest events of this year. Beyond the obvious social and economic problems suffered by the country, this crisis has also affected the video game industry.
Development studios such as Frogwares or GSC Game World have had to pause their development, or even change course on their roadmap. However, good news finally arrives.
The development of STALKER 2: Heart of Chornobyl (new name after rejecting Russian terminology) has resumed. A few weeks ago the first information on the subject arrived, but now it is an official confirmation.
