Bethesda S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Rumor

This tweet from Sergey Galyonkin, marketing director at 1C Multimedia and this blog post have sparked rumors that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is in development at Bethesda Softworks after development of the first-person shooter sequel was frozen following trouble at developer GSC Game World. The Steam Forums (thanks PlayStation Universe) has a translation:

The following info is from a reliable source but isn't official, keep that in mind.

Sergey Grigorovich didn't sell the brand name "STALKER".

Bethesda is going to publish a STALKER game and has all the rights to it.

The game is multiplatform(consoles+PC) and is based on Bethesda technology.

It's being made by a studio familiar with that technology(possibly Obisidian or the Fallout 3 team from Bethesda, but no facts as of yet). It is almost 100% guaranteed that it's not a Ukrainian studio.

Bethesda will be able to buy the brand name from Grigorovich later, but for now all the misc. merchandise is his responsibility.

Release date, engine, detailes - TBA.

The interface is also a hellish nightmare, from hell.
Just like STALKER and The Witcher, which were both PC exclusive games. A bad interface is a bad interface and going multi-platform isn't the reason for that, it's just used as an excuse. That said, I found Skyrim's UI to be an improvement over Oblivion and most of the issues - like the levelling system - were obviously just bad design and not console related. It didn't get in the way of me enjoying the game.

The PC version was better because of mods and the editor, no doubt, but the port was less than stellar.
The graphics were better, the performance was excellent (especially after a few patches), it was much more customisable and it played well on mouse and keyboard. I honestly don't know what people are expecting but going multi-platform allows developers to increase the scale of the game. Without that we wouldn't have seen games like Skyrim and Deus Ex: Human Revolution, as their smaller budgets would have greatly limited what they could do (if they could even justify such a game as a PC exclusive).

But again, the STALKER franchise - as interesting and atmosphere as it is - was pretty shitty from an interface and performance perspective and it was a PC exclusive. People need to just accept that sometimes a game is a mess because it's a mess and not try to paint consoles as the enemy at every opportunity. I don't like consoles but I don't feel the need to blame them for every mistake or perceived issue with a game.
