GSC Game World announces STALKER 2


Ukrainian developer GSC Game World has announced that it is working on STALKER 2.

We would be well advised not to hold our breath in anticipation, though: the announcement was made via a teaser website which reveals precisely nothing beyond the fact that the sequel to 2007’s STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl is due for a 2021 release. 

Since the original STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl caught the public imagination, GSC Game World has released two more STALKER instalments – 2008’s Clear Sky and 2009’s Call of Pripyat – plus 2016’s Cossacks 3.

This isn’t the first time GSC Game World has announced STALKER 2 – it originally did so in 2010, before cancelling the project a year later, leaving the studio dormant until 2014. Hopefully, though, with three years in which to make the game, GSC Game World will deliver this time around. For further information, you might want to watch GSC Game World’s website.
