The lights are on
Last month, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fans got the scare of their life when reports began surfacing that developer GSC Game World was closing and the sequel was never coming out.
Now, fans can rest easier...at least for a little while longer. The team published a message on their official Facebook page saying the sequel is still in development.
"The Stalker team is extremely happy! Why? Because we are continuing work on Stalker 2 after the holidays," they wrote.
In December, a Ukrainian news website reported the studio had closed, but GSC later denied the report.

Thank goodness. STALKER is one of the best Post-apoc games out there.
you can't imagine how glad i am about this.
STALKER was definitely a out of nowhere hit for me. It's one of those gems that gets criminally overlooked. Excited that they are still going to be making a STALKER 2.
For some reason, playing Shadow of Chernoble gave me a headache so I let it go. I never played Call of Pripyat but I may have too to see what the hype is about.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is NOT from a Russian developer,same for Metro 2033. Both of these games are from Ukrainian developers. No,Ukraine IS NOT Russia.
Best news I've heard in a while.
YES!!! I was so bummed out when I heard they closed. this is great news
Not the most encouraging words he could have used. It essentially translates to:
"We're happy because we still have a job! Yay!"
I never liked the original Stalker. No flow in my eyes.
Seriously underrated title.
that's good, i love stalker
Can't wait since its coming to consoles.
Cool. To tide over the wait, people should watch the movie "Stalker," based off of the same book that the games are based off of. Really fantastic film.
This is great news indeed, I have the STALKER games in my Steam library and haven't gotten to playing them yet since the Christmas Sale. I will though soon with the Complete Mod. Also, STALKER 2 might not be coming to consoles, since GSC couldn't secure a license with Sony / Microsoft. This is what many people are saying, and after almost closing down it's very unlikely they will make a console port.
That's reassuring; I still haven't played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. properly though cause my rig can't handle it like it deserves (maxed out with the Complete 2012 mod, of course), but when I actually start playing it, I have a feeling I'll really enjoy it.
