GSC Game World, the Ukraine based developer responsible for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series announced on December 9, 2011 that they are closing their doors for good.
I still think this is a PR stunt! Maybe I'm just a fanboy in denial but this series sold almost 5 million copies and is one of the greatest games ever made. The open world, the Atmosphere, the detailed graphics, The A.I. were all ground breaking. I just do not understand how GSC could close! I'm so confused right now!
This is what happens when they try to sell out to console gaming. And I am just as upset as you are about it. The whole problem with not being able to find a publisher has to do with the console part of it. NOT the PC end.
i agree but not finding a publisher sounds weird as i'm sure Deep Silver or THQ would publish it for the consoles. anyway if not then just release the PC version on Steam........after all STALKER is a PC game!
I built a gaming PC just a few months back, and STALKER Call of Pripyat was the first game I bought for it. Fantastic, atmospheric open-world FPS. Perhaps the best single-player FPS I've played in years. If the studio really is closing, then that's a true shame. I was really looking forward to their next title.
it's sad i have been waiting so long for the sequel :(
Firstly this is the 800th time this has been reported. Secondly GSC have said no such thing. Some guy who people mistook for the CEO said something but that's about it. The official statement is they're doing their best, what that means, we don't know. But they've not closed their doors as far as we know.
