they can own all the names and rights they want. won't make them less crappy developers. so ya.. call of pripyat was the last stalker game, anything after that is gonna be just another fallout 3 spin off with zero of the original atmosphere or 'feel' retained.
And this has what to do with his post?
If Bethesda owns the name now they might make a STALKER 2.
u just gotta let some games die peacefully... unfortunately developers these days aren't that bright so all they do is remakes cuz they can't come up with anything original on their own.
but i guess it could have been worse... if EA got the rights you'd probably be paying for hleb DLC and vodka crates as pre-order bonus.
