Does Atomic Heart have a six-hour cutscene?

-You may have heard a rumour that an Atomic Heart six-hour cutscene is in the game. But was this just a fable or can it actually be found while playing?

Atomic Heart Six Hour Cutscene: The Twins can be seen

Are you curious about if an Atomic Heart six-hour cutscene exists? Rumours have been circulating around the internet that it lies somewhere in the game but Mundfish hasn’t ever referenced it. So is it in the lengthy FPS experience?

Below, you can find out the answer based on our time playing the game for our Atomic Heart review. The cutscene was rumoured to feature the Atomic Heart robot women Twins who have been heavily featured in the marketing alongside the other Atomic Heart characters.

Does Atomic Heart have a six-hour cutscene?

From our time playing we have not found a six-hour Atomic Heart cutscene anywhere in the game. Granted, some of the cutscenes are long (arguably too long), but they are nowhere near six hours.

Almost all of them wrap up before six minutes in fact! So, you shouldn’t expect to have to sit there during the story or any of the side objectives. There is a chance it could be activated via an easter egg somewhere on the Atomic Heart map. But, if it does happen to be found we will update this guide.

So there you have it, that is what you need to know about the six-hour Atomic Heart cutscene rumours. While you won’t be sitting there for six hours watching a cutscene, you will meet a number of unique and interesting Atomic Heart characters throughout your journey which you can read up on in our Atomic Heart walkthrough, which is also packed with additional guides.

Developer Mundfish has come under increasing scrutiny in recent weeks after it was alleged that the Russian government stands to gain financially from the release of Atomic Heart. This is due to the fact that investors involved in the financing of Mundfish include GEM Capital, an investment fund whose founder has ties to Gazprom and VTB Bank, both of which are majority-owned by the Russian state. 

Mundfish is also partnering with VK (formerly Mail.RU) for the Russian release of Atomic Heart, evading sanctions on Steam – VK is also majority-owned by the Russian state through Gazprombank, and Mundfish’s CEO is a former Creative Director at Mail.RU.

With Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine, many players are now choosing to boycott the game in protest and donate money to organisations like The Ukraine Crisis Appeal, International Rescue Committee, and the British Red Cross.
