The S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series has a pretty dedicated fanbase, and those fans have been looking forward to its next outing for a while now. With the upcoming S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2GSC Game World is making ambitious promises, and based on what we’ve seen and heard of the open world horror shooter so far, there’s certainly reason to be excited for it. If you’re a console player, however, you’re going to need an Xbox Series X/S to play it- but is there a chance that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 eventually releases for PS5 as well?

We posed the question to its developers as GSC Game World in a recent interview, who told us that currently, there are no plans to bring the game to PS5, before adding that Xbox Game Pass (where the game will be releasing at launch), was one of the primary reasons for it launching as an Xbox console exclusive.

No plans for now,” the developer said. “We negotiated the possibilities with Microsoft and saw several good opportunities for the brand including Game Pass.”

They added: “We’re concentrating on the Xbox Series X/S version.”

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is currently in development for Xbox Series X/S and PC. Currently, it has no firm release date. On Xbox Series X, the game will support ray-tracing and 120 FPS performance. Our full interview with the developers will be going live soon, so stay tuned for that.
