You dont just 'give' a multi million dollar game to another company just because its your splinter group. Then theres always the other side where 4A Probably doesnt want a stalker game when they have the far more successful Metro series to deal with.

Im afraid that if GSC dies so does stalker.

or if someone else picks it up, they turn it into a COD type game or fallout game, which would suck.

4A is a team that left GSC to do the Metro games.

I love Metro 2033 but STALKER is way more successful than Metro 2033.

I'm talking awards and sales figures.......STALKER is over 4 million units sold!

GSC other popular game Cossacks is slightly more valuable than Metro 2033 as well but Metro Last Light should put the series closer to STALKER but not the same level.

anyway this is just a PR stunt while GSC moves to a new building to accommodate the servers needed for the online stuff and a bigger Dev team.

The developers need to move to 4A, start up a second team and complete it their. Have it published by THQ for PC/360/PS3. Then I goto store, open the door and purchase it at launch for PS3.
