STALKER 2 Announced From Original Devs, But Won't Come Anytime Soon

Stalker 2 is in development (again)

STALKER 2 is coming in 2021, apparently

If you're unfamiliar with the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series of games, they made for a neat mix of first-person shooting and RPG elements set in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

Today, a teaser website appeared with nothing more than the text "S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2" and "2.0.2.1." placed on top of a dark cracked wall. The nuclear accident and another odd event some years later have caused a number of terrifying mutants and unusual phenomena to spring up in the zone. A new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is like a Russian Half-Life 3.

The release is scheduled for 2021.

Right out of nowhere, GSC Game World studio head, Sergiy Grygorovych, came forth on Facebook and announced that the company is developing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. And it'll be fun to see what a proper S.T.A.L.K.E.R. follow-up looks like, especially with the advancement in game engines over the years and the directions fans took the original through some thoroughly impressive mods.

Stalker 2 was originally revealed back in 2010, but it didn't get very far before everything-the game and the studio-fell apart. There's no telling if the devs will be rocking an updated X-Ray 1.6 (after S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat's X-Ray 1.5) or if the devs will be powering S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 on something else entirely. What is your fondest memory from the series?
