STALKER 2 is coming in 2021, apparently

Wednesday, 16 May, 2018

The forum post links to a Facebook post from Sergiy Grygorovych, CEO of GSC Game World. Besides the number and moniker, nothing else has been announced yet.

There's bugger all info available at the moment, but fans of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. can rejoice: you're getting a sequel. GSC Game World came back to life in 2014, but instead of a new Stalker, it made Cossacks 3. These mysterious happenings led to the creation of otherworldly Artifacts which can be quite valuable, leading to the venerable S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s to journey into the zone in search of grand fortune. STALKER gave birth two a few follow-up games in STALKER: Clear Sky in 2008, and then STALKER: Call of Pripyat in 2010. Ultimately, we will more than likely learn more about the second game straight from the horse's mouth sometime soon.

I didn't think we'd ever see a numbered sequel to 2007's S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, a game that will probably still be getting new mods long after we're all gone, but these are unusual times.

As for the game engine, nothing has surfaced yet. We've reached out to GSC Game World for comment on what exactly we can hope to see with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.
