GSC Game World, the developer of the upcoming game STALKER 2, has issued a statement warning of potential leaks and spoilers for the game following a security breach at the company.

According to the officials, the breach was attributed to a "community from a Russian social network," according to the statement. GSC Game World stated that an employee's account for a collective work-with-images application was hacked, and alluded to previous cyberattacks on the company relating to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, where GSC is based.

The developer cautioned fans about STALKER 2 leaks and requested that they avoid disseminating such material. The offending VK account initially scans as the sort of fan community you're likely to find on any social media platform. It has 11,000 followers and, ironically, its rules prohibit "illegal content," as well as "politics and political overtones." GSC Game World will almost assuredly not budge on these points, and in response to its statement on Twitter, the Herald published more concept art obtained in the hack.
