Post Rumour: Ex-STALKER devs form Union Studio, developing Fallout/Rage inspired shooter

It looks as though Vostock Games might not be the only studio to form in the aftermath of the break up of STALKER developers, GSC. Russian gaming site, StopGame reports that a significant element of the GSC STALKER team have set up shop in Kiev, and have formed a new outfit called Union Studio.

There are a few tidbits to back this up. A description on UnionStudio's sparse LinkedIn page describes the developer as a 'new company, created together with the best professionals that worked for GSC GAME WORLD and other AAA class studios.' The page announces that they're making a 'cross-platform action shooter which will be available for PC, Mac, PlayStation, XBOX.' There's also a work-in-progress Union Studio site, which simply says 'coming soon.'

The LinkedIn page of former GSC team lead and software developer Eugene Kim now has him listed as the new CEO & Founder at UnionStudio in the Ukraine. Kim's Google+ feed is topped by a link to StopGame's 'another shooter from the developers of STALKER' story. StopGame claim that the game will be announced this Autumn and have a futuristic setting.

The developers haven't officially announced anything yet, but we could end up with another ex-GSC effort to look forward to alongside Vostock's free to play MMO, Survarium.
