STALKER 2 was initially announced back in 2010 and was canceled in 2012. Now, eight years after the first announcement, developer GSC Game World is attempting to try development of the game all over again.
GSC founder Sergiy Grygorovych revealed on his Facebook page saying: “Today 15.05.2018 I officially declare: ‘GSC GAME WORLD DEVELOPS S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2’”. The post also contains a link to a website that includes the name of the game and a date set for 2021.
It is exciting to hear that the game is back in development after a long hiatus. If STALKER 2 is released in 2021 as promised by the developer, then it will put the game nine years behind its original release date back in 2012. Also, it is worth noting that majority of the developers of previous STALKER games, have since left GSC for other companies. The good news for now is we know that STALKER 2 is back in development. However, we still have to wait for at least three more years for the game to be released.
