Stalker 2 site banned by Russian authorities in petty censorship

Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine has had an enormous impact on studios and independent developers anywhere near the conflict. Stalker 2 developer GSC Game World was based in the Ukrainian capital city Kyiv, but is currently in the process of relocating to Prague, and in March ceased all operations in Russia.

GSC has since the start of the war condemned the “inhuman cruelty” of the invasion and been explicit about this being a question of survival for its employees and their families. The studio has paused development on Stalker 2 for the moment—though did update the Steam entry to change the word Chornobyl to reflect the Ukrainian spelling). The game’s official website was also updated with a message of support for Ukraine and a link for aid donations.
