Stalker 2’s website blocked in Russia


The game website of GSC Game World, the developer behind Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl, has been blocked by the Russian government.

According to RIA Novosti (via VGC), the request to block the site came from the Office of the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation. Stalker 2’s website advertised pro-Ukraine banners and side messages, and has since been inaccessible to Russian internet users. The move comes after GSC Game World decided to stop sales in Russia, as the Kyiv-based studio also continued to develop their upcoming games during the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

When the Russian-Ukrainian war broke out in February, GSC Game World was one of the first studios to publicly support Ukraine. Immediately after the initial attack, the studio shared a message showing their support for the Ukrainian Armed Forces, and called on the gaming community to share their message and support. Countless other studios have since followed suit, including 11 bit Studios and CD Projekt Red, to whom GSC Game World has expressed its support and gratitude.

Despite wanting to keep making games, GSC Game World announced development “moved to the sidelines” shortly after the invasion, as the studio supported its employees and their families in the attack. To get the game’s development on track, the studio has reportedly considered moving its staff to Prague in order to complete the game ahead of its planned release at the end of this year, though the move has yet to be confirmed by GSC Game World.

Amid their ongoing protests over the war, GSC Game World has quietly changed their game’s name, changing the spelling of “Chernobyl” to the Ukrainian romanized spelling “Chernobyl”, and for Ukrainian Fundraising for humanitarian work.

Stalker 2 will be released on Xbox Series X|S and PC on December 8, 2022. receive a commission from retail offers.
