Could GSC Game World live on and bring us S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 after all? After the less-than-encouraging news we heard last week, we figured the Ukrainian game development studio was close to shutting down. However, the latest tweet from GSC's official Twitter feed offers some hope:
Dear Stalkers: We will not be releasing any official news until around mid January. However there is cause for hope! Good hunting!
I hope that means S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is still in the works. As we noted last week, the game was supposed to come out some time in 2012 on the PC and consoles—the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game to do so. GSC Game World teased a number of improvements over previous titles in the series, including a new, DirectX 11-infused game engine and stronger survival elements. Nods to survival horror are, in my opinion, what made the first two games great.
I just wish they'd drop the punctuation in the name. That stuff is hard to type quickly. (Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the tip.)
