While it was already reported a couple of years ago that GSC Game World’s STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl would be running on the Unreal Engine, the news was not specific on which particular version the game will be running on.
With a simple tweet, however, the official STALKER Twitter account confirmed that the game’s graphics will be running on the Unreal Engine 5.
According to Game Rant, the STALKER Twitter tagged the Unreal Engine Twitter with a message, “Feel free to mention we’re running on UE5.”
The Unreal Engine Twitter was unveiling a list of 80 upcoming games that were designed to run on various Unreal Engines. The STALKER account then chimed in, retweeting the post and responding with its own message.
This announcement has left fans spoiling for the release of the final product, as the Unreal Engine 5 has the potential to create highly detailed and diverse environments. As STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl is set on a post-apocalyptic world, fans can’t help but speculate at how the game would look like in the final product with the Unreal Engine 5 behind it.
STALKER 2’s Gameplay trailer dropped two months ago, giving fans a sneak peek at what the game’s graphics would look like once it is released next year.
