S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Still in Development, GSC Still Alive

OXCGN:

"A few weeks ago, an extremely unexpected and radically depressing statement flew across the internet like wildfire: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. developer GSC Game World announced that they were closing, and that the official second game in the series would be canceled.

"After teasing us for weeks on end, those crazy guys and gals over at GSC have given us an early Christmas present."

Please everyone just relax!

This has all been a publicity stunt!

GSC moved into some new offices and the DotA 2 pro gaming team Na'Vi moved into the old GSC offices.

STALKER 2 was never canceled but GSC did shut their doors only to move somewhere else and re-open.

STALKER 2 is still set for a 2012 release date and the new offices are big enough for a proper server center for quicker updates/patches and the online DRM stuff. Also rumor is GSC may merge with another company for better graphics but I don't know the validity of that info.

But what i do know is the game is most likely %70 to 90% finished and GSC is gonna enjoy the Holidays now that they are moved and then get back to finishing up the game come mid January for a yet to be determined 2012 release date and some E3 2012 footage!

"Heres an artifact STALKER.....Ka-boom"!

So what was with all the STALKER is dead talk awhile back then?

Did they get new funding or a publisher?

Probably just some Russian preteen angst drama.

I hope they can still make a good title...these days you have to be Ubisoft, EA, MS, or Sony to afford to make a good AAA shooter.

the stalker games beat out anything those guys have to offer single player wise.
