S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in 2006?

Oblivion-Lost.com has a story up speculating that the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl has slipped until 2006, offering the following quote from THQ responding to questions about the game's absence from their recent financial reports covering releases through the middle of next year: "We have no definitive release date yet for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. We do expect to have some announcements, including a public demonstration this summer. More news to follow." In an amusing side note, the THQ's S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Website (thanks Rhialto) actually lists the game as "now available," much to the amusement of those who frequent the GSC Game World Forums.

Your not alone. Why cant developers get it we want these type of games? I would love to see a SS3 or DE3, but if its a different IP and has the same game mechanics I'm all for it.

Some of us understand. Like i said, keep an eye out after E3.

And about them not selling well, that's not entirely true. System Shock 2 would have made a decent amount of money if it wasn't for the situation over at Looking Glass. Deus Ex likewise had a slow start but eventually made its fair share. It's not that these games weren't getting bought, it's that they weren't marketed in the way that, say, STALKER was. Can't really say is because now STALKER is becoming quite the industry joke. However you'd be hard pressed to find a PC gamer that has never heard of STALKER, so joke or not, that's good marketing. So the issue here is that someone needs to make a great game along those lines, with deep gameplay, a great story and memorable characters, and make sure that it is marketed correctly. Perhaps gamers will get lucky and someone will.
