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.

Right now it still does, yes. Next year, it's not going to look at all great anymore. Especially not once the new consoles hit the market.

Bleh, I'm not concerned about the console side of things. If the game is fun, then graphically it can still be adequate.

It doesn't seem that ambitious to me really. It's almost like taking GTA:SA making it bigger, forcing a FPP and giving it a better AI and giving it a change of setting. GTA:SA worked fine, why not STALKER?

Um, I'd like to think the storyline behind STALKER is a fair bit more original than GTA: SA, for starters. GTA:SA impressed me with its size and amount of replayability, but most of it just wasn't that fun. It seemed rather bland to work your ass off to go on dates and get laid. Shit, I can do that in real life.

According to this site, Deus Ex sold approx. 500,000 copies. Based on this information, i'd consider this the 'fair share' i mentioned in an earlier post.

I was thinking it had to have sold a few more copies than just 98,000. I mean, the sales apparently warranted a sequel to it.
