There's a lot of excitement surrounding Xbox exclusive and Game Pass title Stalker 2, which is expected arrive at some point later this year, and developer GSC Game World has addressed why it's only coming to Xbox Series X & S.

Simply put, PR manager Zakhar Bocharov stated to GamingBolt that it would be "impossible" for the game to run on Xbox One due to its requirements, and therefore the focus is solely on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is a next-gen game, and it’s impossible to run it on Xbox One or PS4.”

For now, GSC Game World also says there are "no plans" to bring Stalker 2 to PlayStation 5, and the big reason is because the team "saw several good opportunities for the brand" by partnering with Microsoft - such as Game Pass.

It looks like Stalker 2 is going to be one of the few next-gen Xbox exclusives of 2021, then, assuming it manages to meet its release window. The team has already confirmed it has "bigger and louder announcements" in store this year.
