S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Was Announced... Again

Recommended Posts

 

I'm at a loss for words. I never thought we would see this game again. I'm not sure how many people here care about Stalker, but I love the series and was wondering what everyone thinks about the possibility of seeing Stalker 2 again.

Announced for 2021 and will still likely be delayed.

Really should've waited until the game was actually close before doing this, but eh.

Also wow, it's been 9 years since the last Stalker

Please tell me they dropped the previous idea to make it an always-online game?

I don't know why they decided to announce it this early either. It seems like a bad move on their part. Especially given the problems they had developing the first Stalker and the problems Stalker 2 as had.

They haven't given us any kind of details like that yet. All they said was they're making the game and that's it. It's probably going to be another two years before we see any gameplay (if they don't cancel it again). But they could give us information in the meantime.

I was referring to what they said when they announced the second game in 2011: https://kotaku.com/5847942/stalker-2-requires-a-permanent-internet-connection?IR=T I am just hoping that they don't go with that idea this time around.

 

Also I hope they allow a drm free release for GoG and retail while also releasing it on drm platforms such as Steam.

Sorry I misunderstood.

 

Since the announcement of Stalker 2 I've gone back and looked into some of the old information about the game. There were some design documents leaked a couple years ago. They describe aspects of the story and mechanics of the game. They also came with the map of the zone, if anyone's interested.

Where was this 5 years ago when I still cared?

 

GSC Game World was "dissolved" during the development of Stalker 2 which is why it was canceled. There's some more information on the wiki if you're interested. As to how stable they are now I can't say, a lot of their team went to go work for companies like 4A games to work on the Metro series.

These are the best news ever. I don't know if anything good will come out of this but just seeing that they're working on it again made me super happy.

Radioactive s*it this is awesome, never thought I'd see the day a new Stalker game is announced.

 

I'm looking forward, Shadow of Chernobyl was amazing.

Yeah I know. I was being facetious because they shouldn't have run the company into the ground and we should have had this game five years ago when I still gave a shit about STALKER.

So, I'll be only glad if S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 will be released.

I'll believe it when I see some gameplay footage. Loved the first game.
