In an interview with German Oblivion Lost fansite, GSC revealed that while it is working on the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky expansion, they are seriously contemplating bringing the franchise into the MMO market.

Community Q&A 2007-11 Answers

We received quite a few questions from fansites of the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and this is really great. We want to thank you for your interest in the game. In this series of answers we have decided to bend the rules a little and reply to more questions than we planned originally. First we have answered questions that have been asked several times, meaning that they are especially relevant. And so, here is the first portion of answers:

1. Will a Singleplayer SDK be released?

We really did plan to release an SDK for the singleplayer part of the game, however right now the whole team is busy with development of "Clear Sky" and cannot devote enough time to the SDK. We cannot release our tools the way they currently are, since they are meant for internal use and would be extremely complicated for other people. So, the answer is - certainly not at this time, but maybe sometime later.

2. Will there be S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Online?

We do not quite understand what you mean by "online". If it is the cooperative mode, then no, there will be none. Even at the time of development of the first part of the game we said that a cooperative mode is impossible, since Life Simulation would be different at each computer. Synchronizing it would be practically not doable. If you mean an MMOG, then we are seriously considering it.

3. Will there be support for DX8, or only DX9 and DX10?

Yes, we leave support for the DX8 renderer, which will let users of weaker machines into the world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. The game allows sufficiently flexible configuration for the player's computer.

4. "Clear Sky" is based on the updated 1.5 engine. Should we expect additional optimization and improvement of performance, or only addition of new features? Will the new engine be added to the original game, are new editions planned?

The X-Ray Engine underwent fairly serious changes. Not only did it gain a set of new features, a higher level of detail, but has also been optimized quite a bit. Development of DX10 is currently going ahead full speed; it will give owners of newer video cards a better picture.

As for moving the original game to the new engine - it will not be done. "Shadow of Chernobyl" is a complete and finished game, which in future will only get patches, fixing discovered errors and improving multiplayer.

As for system requirements, some features of the game, such as volumetric light, are quite demanding and require a newer video card. Of course, as we said, the game is quite configurable.

5. Do such characters as Voronin, Lukash, Sakharov participate in the plot of "Clear Sky"?

It will not do anyone any good to uncover the plot of the game, so we will limit ourselves to a dry phrase: "the player will meet characters he knows."

I think they should work on developing the giant update they've been promising.

Meh... stop with the MMO crap already.

EVERY time there is a game that doesn't suck, people say "wow they should make an MMO of this...".

I used to think the same thing until I played a few MMOs and realized what they are all about.

No thnx.

I'm all for proper multiplayer, especially cooperative multiplayer, but there is no reason this game should be "massively multiplayer".

They could save themselves a butt load of money by just making the open game world work with maybe 8 players running on normal dedicated servers. The multiplayer guys would get what they wanted, the game world wouldn't be ruined (by having 700,000 people wandering around a supposedly uninhabited wasteland) and they wouldn't be buried in server costs that they couldn't pay for.
