GSC Game World, the Ukrainian developer behind Stalker 2, shared a message on Twitter Friday morning referring to Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. The developer urged those in the video game industry to “not stand aside” and provide aid to those affected by the invasion.
The developer writes: “Our country wakes up to the sounds of explosions and weapons firing. “We therefore refer to all of our colleagues in the gaming industry. Players, bloggers or anyone seeing this post in their news feed: Share this, […] help those in need. ”
The developer also provides bank account numbers for people to financially support Ukraine’s armed forces during the ongoing conflict.
No updates have been provided for GSC Game World’s in-development project, Stalker 2, but given the dire situation, it’s easy to see why. GSC Game World is headquartered in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. Since Russian leader Vladimir Putin began a full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24, it was reported that many Kyiv residents and Ukrainian servicemen were killed and/or injured as a result of the attacks on the city. According to CNNMore than 40 soldiers and 10 civilians were killed across Ukraine in the hours following the invasion.
Kyiv Mayor Vitaly Klitschko declare a state of emergency in the Ukrainian capital last night. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskey also declare martial law over the entire territory of Ukraine in response to the invasion.
