HOORAY: STALKER 2 development to continue in spite of recent closure talk
Against all odds, STALKER 2 has risen from the grave. Or, well, the probable grave - given recent talk of closure and the dev team being "almost completely dissolved." It would appear, however, that rumors of STALKER 2's death have been greatly exaggerated. Straight from the official Facebook page of the horse's mouth:
"The Stalker team is extremely happy! Why? Because we are continuing work on Stalker 2 after the holidays."
So dry your radiation-tinged tears. The Zone lives on to brutally murder you another day. I have, however, gone ahead and contacted GSC in hopes of finding out whether development's proceeding full steam ahead or in the emaciated fingers of a dedicated skeleton crew. Here's hoping for the former.
