S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Still Stalking

The STALKER Twitter Feed offers a vague status report on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, the first-person shooter sequel with the uncertain future. Word is: "There are legal reasons why we have not made an 'official' statement. But Stalker 2 development continues." Thanks VG247.

I'm not hugely optimistic about this, despite being a big fan of the STALKER series. At the bare minimum they need a) a lot more funding, b) a lot better quality control, and c) a completely new engine. I'd love to see them licence the Dunia engine (Far Cry 2), as it was incredibly well optimised and had very impressive visuals, as well as handling a large open world with no loading times.

The original game - STALKER: Shadow Of Chernobyl - was heavily delayed, graphically average, hugely demanding and buggy. The two "sequels" were largely just the same game with some new areas and a few impressive graphical additions. Don't get me wrong, I loved Clear Sky but by the time that Call Of Pripyat came out I was fed up with the engine and the gameplay was incredibly samey. After playing Far Cry 2 I just couldn't look at STALKER in the same way.

I wish them the best of luck but I'm much more interested in the off-shoot studio 4A Games, which was responsible for Metro 2033. Metro: Last Light is one of the games I'm most looking forward to this year. It's certainly not open world like STALKER but I really enjoyed 2033.
