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.

Supposedly they're having trouble with the creatue AI. Read the FAQ of what they're shooting for and you get an idea of just why its taking so long. In a nutshell its very very ambitious.

Also, they seem to keep finding reasons to NOT show the outdoor DX9 stuff which leads me to beleive thats another problem they need to work out.

I don't fault them for pushing it back though. I'd rather see the game done right rather than have some empty suit force it out to cover their quarterly finacial projections for shareholders.
