What a joke

"(...)the latest delay for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, GSC Game World's tardy shooter: "In addition, previously delayed PC title S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl has slipped further, and is down for an October 2006 release at the earliest."

I think someone put this in another thread already, but either way...this is so ridiculous. The game is never coming out.

I'm starting to think that DNF is going to come out before S.T.A.L.K.E.R. It probably will....in 5 years..

Perhaps they're updating the graphics engine as development continues? Maybe?

Yeah, but if they are, by the time they get to release (now Oct 2006) they will realize, "Hey, why don't we delay it another year and upgrade the engine some more?"

they'll get teh game released and go bankrupt because they didn't make enough money to cover thier costs. The longer they work on it, the less profit they'll make.

This sucks too, I was really looking foward to this game. I really liked the concept behind it, but i'll guess we'll see how it turns out in the end.

hmmm, I thought this game had come and gone already.

Forget that game. Besides, the title has too many periods, why can't be be more like F.E.A.R. Awwww.... F.E.A.R., now thats a top notch game. :D

What i think causes the delay is the massive game levels they are trying to work maybe one week everything looks solid then next week playtesting its all wrong and they maybe cant figure out how the hell to fix or something. Cause the game looked very nice and finished in 2003/04. heck even the playable alpha was nice with dx8 effects.

They probably just dont have the talent to develop a game of such scope. Maybe they should borrow some developers from Rockstar North to help them.

Damn, I was hoping this game didn't turn out to be a new DNF....

Oh well... there's still hope. After all, HL2 came out eventually :p

The problem is if this game ever does ship, it will take so long, that a small, competent group of developers will release something emulating all the things they're trying to accomplish with stalker.

By the time this game hits, everything it boasts about will be old news and already done in future titles.
