Work on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Continues; Needs Funding

In December, rumors abounded that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. developer GSC and the in-production sequel were being shut down. But after the Christmas break, a Facebook status update clarified the situation with the following message:

The Stalker team is extremely happy! Why? Because we are continuing work on Stalker 2 after the holidays.

However, the company is still seeking funding. GSC spokesperson Oleg Yavorsky told Edge:

We are still in the process of seeking funding to back up the project. We are hopeful things turn out well eventually. The team really wants to see STALKER continue.

While S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is, by far, the most annoying game to write about thanks to the use of a huge acronym as a title, I commend the game for its modability and the modding community it has fostered. I hope GSC finds the funding it needs.


Thanks, vg247.

Even if they do manage to make it, its the most buggy game ever. THeir QA department needs to be fired. Clear sky was a crash and burn, it was so full of bugs/crashes that the developer just stopped fixing them leaving millions of people up s**t creek without a paddle.

Yeah, I could never get that take territory thing to work. I still enjoyed it though. Fun games in general, but the first was the best.
