Default GSC closes, stalker 2 cancled

LINK

Mother****er..... Mother****er mother****er mother****er....

No one knows why yet.. some really wacky theories out there.. strange statements, personal reasons ect ect. More info in the link. If this is true, this is the worst gaming news of the last 5 years for me. I must have spent around 350+ hours of my life in the stalker universe. My favorite game series of all time.

Damn.

seems particularly vague. One report from Ukrainian news, denied by the studio?
I'll wait for more info before mourning...

There goes my last reason to stick with PC gaming.

But considering the sales potential of the game someone will pick it up and ruin it.

Good by STALKER, you are on of my all time favourite games.

heart breaking, really. I only hope one day they can come back to it. I would rather it stay in hiatus instead of being passed off to some other developer who wouldn't know what they are doing.

The owner of the company stated that GSC was closed down for "personal reasons". Whatever, sell the IP to 4Agames, who were partly responsible for the first STALKER game. Hopefully the former GSC employees land a job with 4A.
