bitComposer Acquires S.T.A.L.K.E.R. License

bitComposer Entertainment AG has today announced the acquisition of the exclusive worldwide rights for future videogame adaptations of the acclaimed S.T.A.L.K.E.R. brand from Boris Natanovich Strygatsky. This is the second strong international license that the Eschborn-based company has acquired within the space of a few years, and this move ensures that the successful series will continue.

It's too late for STALKER the original developers went on to form new studios

If they had then they would'nt have acquired the license
If ubisoft could acquire the Call of Duty name they would. This could just be about name recognition.

If some of them are at 4A and some of them making two separate apocalyptic games starting two new dev studios how many devs could be left?

Maybe the janitor & security guard will continue the series?

The original GSC members are gone and formed these sudios...

4A-Metro franchise
Vostok-Survarium MMO game
Union-making new apocalyptic game

So how could a true STALKER game be made?

It doesn't mean they can't make a successful follow up to Stalker just because the original team aren't there. A new team can take what made Stalker great and improve on it.

The original team made a great series, but that doesn't mean there wasn't a lot of faults with it, the engine could have been a lot better.

They aren't the only good game devs on the planet you know.
