    GSC Gameworld is shutting down; no S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2

    According to UkraNews, GSC Gameworld, the creators of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series, are closing down, as per the decision of GSC Gameworld CEO Sergei Grigorovich. This quite probably means this will be the end of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series.

    This information coincides with an apparent leak of high quality concept art and screenshots from S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 into the web. NMA, as usual, prepared a gallery for your viewing.

    Hey, have hope everyone! Maybe Bethesda will buy the rights and revive it as a Farmville clone!

    But how will I get my gas mask and acoustic guitar fix without more S.T.A.L.K.E.R games?

    Sadface. On of the few FPS games that were more than half-assed RPGs or linear corridor.

    Never liked this series that much. The first one was disappointing at the time, the last one was the best for me, but it still felt very lacking.

    The only thing it really had, compared to, say, New Vegas, was that the combat was actually challenging and radiation and hunger were a bit more dangerous. Other than that, meh, honestly.

    Was still looking forward to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, though. Hopefully someone else will pick it up and won't turn it in to CoD: Radioactive Edition.

    Maybe it's for the better... Weren't they going for the xbox360 crowd (which would basically mean streamlining and dumbing down stuff) ?

    Yup, that game was going to be on Xbox too, but everything in the previous games could be done on a console just fine, unless you have that familiar "Players are idiots" mentality.

    I wouldn't mind if they simply copied Fallout3/New Vegas, minus the shitty combat mechanics.

    Well, there isn't much to dumb down in Stalker, except maybe the inventory.

    Then you just copy Resident Evil 4/Deus Ex Human Revolution and you are done.

    STALKER might not be as polished as other games, but the gameplay mechanic and atmosphere are the reason to love it.

    In other news.
    Skyrim is the most-played game after Modern Warfare 3.

    -Fallout 3 is Oblivion with guns.

    Just when they were getting the hang of it with CoP. I wonder if they'll blame this on PC piracy.

    Never played s.t.a.l.k.e.r but I did watch the movie. Always sad to see something that a lot of people enjoy (that isn't something suck like a bondage club or whatever) go the way of the Guptas

    My guess is if the franchise goes up for sale then THQ will have the first crack at it.

    [Update: Bourkovski is not in the employ of GSC, instead saying he is a friend of the company. His Tweet confirming closure stories was deleted, but he still says he has been told the studio's been shut down. That said, he's asking everyone to wait for the OFFICIAL word. Hopefully we'll know one way or the other soon.]
    Might not be closing. Probably is, but MIGHT not.
    If this sentence is true, then this sentence is false.

    Love the Stalker series but I don't mind not seeing STALKER 2 which was going to be a multiplatform release (read: dumbed down POS that barely resembles the originals).
