S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Resumes Development

A post on Facebook by Sergiy Grygorovych has an announcement from GSC Game World that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is in development (thanks Polygon). Or more correctly, back in development after a first go at the shooter sequel was put on indefinite hold back in 2012. There isn't much to go by yet, but there's a new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Website offering a 2021 (2.0.2.1.) release window. Word is:
Today 15.05.2018 I officially declare:
"GSC GAME WORLD DEVELOPS S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2"

"why is this games acronym so many"
Short answer, why not.

Long answer;
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. stands for "Scavengers, Trespassers, Adventurers, Loners, Killers, Explorers, Robbers".
But
If you take every letter and convert it to its numerical value in the alphabet, then sum the results it totals 86. The Chernobyl nuclear power plant catastrophe occurred in 1986.

Possibly for copyright reasons (if that is a concern in this circumstance), to differentiate from the Tarkovsky movie of the same title, or the book on which that is based (Roadside Picnic). Not sure, but that would be my assumption.

High hopes this comes to be at a level of quality to match the original.

Okay. Anyhow, the question still stands.

Having been blessed with their previous excellence, it's going to be a real challenge to capture and create that same Stalker goodness.

My largest fear, like so many games, is that it will be console crippled in design.

Nah, Sergiy is THE guy at GSC Game World. I don't remember the specifics, but I believe it was 100% his decision to put the sequel on hold back in the day and nobody could do anything about it because he owns everything. So the studio shut down and the rest of the guys went on to form their own and do Survarium (2018 me feels sorry for 2012 me hoping that'd be any good, lol). The clowns who took to Kickstarter in '14 trying to scam $50k for a spiritual successor were a whole different circus.
