Stalker 2 PS5 release date speculation, PS4 version, gameplay

Find out when the Stalker 2 PS5 release date is after the game initially launches on Xbox and PC, and what to expect from the survival FPS.

Stalker 2 PS5 Release Date: A solider can be seen

When could we see a Stalker 2 PS5 version? Despite being announced for Xbox and PC, it appears that we could see GSC Game World’s long-awaited sequel hit PlayStation platforms. But, when could that Stalker 2 PS5 release date be?

Stalker 2 is not too far away now and that means that the PS5 version is also closer than it ever has been. So, if you have been looking forward to exploring the haunting desolate Chernobyl ruins, then Stalker 2 is for you. Here is the latest on the game and the rumors, leaks, and details about a PlayStation version.

Stalker 2 PS5 release date speculation

Stalker 2’s PS5 release date is reportedly set for March 2024 or later. This is three months after its Xbox and PC launch. Leaked documents from 2021 revealed that Microsoft had obtained a three-month exclusivity period for the title. So, we should see it release sometime in the Spring or later. 

Of course, GSC Game World is a Ukrainian studio and given the country is still suffering from the ongoing war, the PS5 release of the game could be pushed further down the line. A PS5 version hasn’t been officially announced, but we would be surprised if it didn’t come to the console.

Stalker 2 PS4 version

We are unlikely to get a Stalker 2 PS4 version as Stalker 2 is built with Unreal Engine 5, making it an incredibly demanding game. The PS4, likely won’t be able to handle it. On the Xbox side, the game isn’t coming to Xbox One, so it seems likely it won’t hit PS4 either.

Stalker 2 gameplay

Stalker 2 is an open world game with a non-linear branching narrative set in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone, an area plagued by mutated creatures and factions vying for control. With these horrifying mutants in play, Stalker 2 blends elements of horror into an FPS immersive sim, so expect some intense gameplay. There’s even survival mechanics like hunger, sleeping, bleeding, radiation effects.

The game features a wide open-world to explore and a ton of weapons to customize as you fight for survival.
