A fire broke out in our offices in Prague on Thursday. Although the fire was successfully extinguished, one of the office floors now needs complete reconstruction. Further details regarding the accident are currently under investigation.”

The studio expressed gratitude for the support and concern shown by fans, assuring them that this setback will not deter their progress. “No anomaly, not even a fire, will stop us on our path to our ultimate goal. We have overcome worse challenges before. It’s okay,” they stated.

Possible Impact on Stalker 2 Release
