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?

4A-Metro franchise
Vostok-Survarium MMO game

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.
