In the legal battle between Epic and Apple, a series of documents have also come to light and have been made public. Through these papers, certain information about Microsoft, its possible strategies and agreements have been revealed. One of them uncovers some details about ID @ Xbox games, among which STALKER 2 stands out. And it is that according to these documents, the title will be a temporary exclusive of Xbox consoles for just three months.
After this period, the developers will be free to launch the game on PlayStation 5. At the moment there is no set date for the launch, although the document points to the Q4 2021. However, it must be borne in mind that these papers date from August 2020, so that some kind of delay or change in the calendar may occur, especially taking into account the health emergency situation in which we find ourselves.
On the other hand, the papers mention six months of exclusivity when it comes to updates to Tetris Effect: Connected, as well as a full exclusivity agreement for The Gunk, which means that it will not be marketed on other consoles.

One of the information that appeared in the documents has already been denied by Xbox. After announcing that reduce revenue rates for PC developers, the company has denied that it is going to do the same with Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Thus, they will not update the income conditions for publishers on consoles “, as they have confirmed to The Verge and we have collected in MeriStation.
STALKER 2 will come out throughout this 2021 on PC, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. According to CSC Game World, those responsible for the title, there are no plans to launch it on previous generation consoles, since they think that it is “impossible for them to work” on these systems.
