S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl is the long-awaited sequel to the original S.T.A.L.K.E.R. trilogy, developed and published by GSC Game World, with a planned release date for 5 September 2024 on PC and Xbox Series consoles. It is a first-person survival horror shooter game, like the original trilogy, and is set to return to the Zone, now rendered beautifully in Unreal Engine 5 and featuring proper character voice acting and motion capture, along with vastly better graphics.

Initially announced following the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, it was initially planned to have released in 2012, before it was ultimately cancelled on the year of its intended release. The game resurfaced years later in 2018, with the release date set for 2021, later delayed to 2022. The real-life Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022 delayed the release yet again to 2023 while the title was changed to "ChOrnobyl" to reflect the native Ukrainian spelling of the word. In August 2023 it was again delayed to first quarter 2024, then in 2024 delayed again to September 5th 2024, surpassing the infamous Duke Nukem Forever in development time. It will be the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game published in 15 years since 2009's Call of Pripyat.

The following weapons appear in the video game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chornobyl:

Over and under shotgun

An Over and Under Shotgun appears in the game, with ornate engravings on the weapon's receiver. Unlike the previous games, it is now a composite model; the rear of the receiver looks like a TOZ-34, while the front looks like an IZh-27. In addition to the above, it also has an IZh-17's trigger guard, with a characteristic spur opening lever (even if that doesn't make obvious sense here). One can also be seen next to a dead bandit in a screenshot released to promote the 2023 GDC preview
