GSC representatives Maxim Tkachenko and Evgeny Bazarov gave an interview to YouTube blogger OLDboi, in which one of them said that rapper Alisher Morgenstern would not take part in testing the game.
The community manager clarified that the situation with the rapper arose against the background of high interest in STALKER 2, due to which the studio did not have time to immediately respond to Morgenstern’s request, and at the moment they have no agreements with him. A spokesman for GSC Game World clarified that they are currently testing the game only on their own.
It is worth noting that YouTuber OLDboi took a text interview from the studio staff, and then voiced their answers, so it is not known which of the representatives answered this question.
In June 2021, Morgenstern announced during a podcast by blogger and stand-up artist Danila Poperechny that he would “be a tester of STALKER 2” and mentioned possible integration with developers.
