The GSC veterans have sent word that they are forming a new studio, Vostock Games
, and will be making a game called Survarium
, which is apparently a Stalker-like MMOFPS. Stalker 2 itself is 'frozen' and the team will be focusing on the new game. They have tweeted: 'All those asking about funding etc. That is not the issue. We were unable to secure the IP rights to continue with the Stalker franchise.' There will be a Q&A session with Oleg Yavorsky and Joe Willburn tomorrow on Twitter to explain the Survarium project in detail.
The new studio have also circulated a video about their plans, which you can see below.
