Stalker 2 has been one of our most anticipated games for a good while, even if a couple of delays have dampened our excitement a little bit. The game is now set for a 2023 launch on Xbox, but, what if one of its PC-only predecessors came to console to help with the wait?
Well, it looks like just that could be happening. Video footage of Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl, seemingly being played on Xbox, has appeared online. There are tweaks from the initial PC release on show here (including updated Xbox button prompts, wider FOV), hinting that a console port of the 2007 classic could be on the way.
At present, none of this has been confirmed by developer GSC Game World, and the footage seems to have been acquired by a Russian YouTube channel. There are evident differences here from the old PC version though, so we'll have to wait and see if anything comes of it.
Shadow of Chernobyl is the first in a trilogy of old Stalker titles - with follow-ups Stalker: Clear Sky and Stalker: Call of Pripyat arriving shortly after. We'd love to see the whole lot on Xbox ahead of Stalker 2's launch, but for now, we'll have to wait and see what GSC has up its sleeve.
Would you like to play the old Stalker games on Xbox? Let us know!
Would be a welcomed good idea to get this out before the second
Picked this up on pc years ago, back when I was a pc gamer. Never really gave it a go though. Would like to if it came to Xbox. I'm playing Metro last night atm, very much like stalker
It would be cool to see a remaster/remake of STALKER as it was a PC only game and would perhaps set-up STALKER 2. I have never played the first game as I'd moved away from Computer based gaming to Consoles - partly because I was a Graphic Designer sat a Computer screen all day and didn't want my 'leisure' time spent the same way.
I will play STALKER 2 regardless as I really want to show some love and support towards the Devs and the game does look interesting although I am not that familiar with the story so would greatly appreciate the opportunity to play the first...
Wow PC exclusive until now. Hope they bring the other two to console aswell. Even better put them on game pass we can dream
Oh man. If this actually drops I'll be so excited. Been wanting to go through this again with proper support.
And if people are able to get passed the dated graphics, they'll be introduced to one of the best shooters out there.
