S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Officially Canceled - Survarium in its place

Recommended Posts

Bad news everyone. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 has been officially canceled. All is not lost though, as the developer regrouped as Vostok Games and announced Survarium, a new F2P MMOFPS slated for a launch by the end of next year.

Only closed today eh? Thought they did that months ago. Shoulda gone console early :lol:

 

The studio officially closed today, even though it was announced several months back. The studio kept on going after the announcement, until today when the doors officially shut.

 

As for your console argument, no. Just no. GSC Game World was not that big of a studio and could not afford to port the previous games to the consoles. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 would have been available on consoles, but now there will not be.

They shouldn't have ever thought about consol IMO. The PC lacks its own shooters which is what made stalker soc, cs and cop so very good to me.

Any attempt to try and play with a gamepad would have been quite the exercise in futility. I regret not seeing another stalker game but it is IMO preferable to the game being barstardised and made easier to play for consol gamers.

What a shame, hope Survarium works out.

 

'No. Just no' isn't a very valid answer. It more than likely would of been good for them, less competition.

I don't want anymore crappy console ports with crappy interfaces. Nothing good for PC gaming comes out of it.

It's actually more competition with a gamble that it might not do very well. If it doesn't do very well on one platform than it's on the others to excel. The market is already clogged with shooters that it might have been washed away in a wave of HaloWarfareField.
