Ukranews has a story (in Russian) reporting GSC Game World is closing down, saying founder and CEO Sergei Grigorovich attributed this to personal reasons, which are not disclosed. Word is employees will be paid through February. NeoGAF has a story on this that seems to handle the article better than our machine translation, saying it mentions unconfirmed speculation that Grigorovich was not happy with progress on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, and that there was danger that Ukrainian law enforcement would seize the company and its assets. There's also a post on The Ascian Gaming Blog with some leaked screenshots and concept art from S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, the planned first-person shooter sequel with a now-cloudy future. They also have a link to a tweet they say confirms GDC's closure (it translates to "GSC Closed"), though Dmitri Bourkovski, who tweeted that, subsequently clarifies: "To everyone reading this because of #GSC & #stalker2 news - I have no connection to GSC and I'm not Sergei Grigorovich (CEO of GSC). Cheers!" Thanks Joao.
