GSC Game World has officially announced that STALKER 2 is in development, a sequel to the developer's well-received STALKER series which comprise of STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl and its sequels Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat.

STALKER 2 was initially announced back in 2010, with a scheduled release date in 2010, with plans to use a new multi-platform game engine that would be written by GSC. This project was eventually cancelled in 2012, bringing an end to the series, or so we thought. 
On PC the STALKER series was well received, achieving high review scores from most publications of that era while becoming one of PC gaming's go-to benchmarks.

Right now, not much is known about STALKER 2, with the game's official website listing "" under the game's name, suggesting a planned 2021 release date.

At this time it seems likely that STALKER 2 will be using Unreal Engine 4, as many of the creators of STALKER's original X-Ray engine have since left GSC Game World, with Epic Games' Sergey Galyonkin tweeting "guess the engine." Developing a game engine is a considerable time/resource commitment, making UE4 seem like a great choice for GSC, whose most recent game is a strategy game called Cossacks 3.

Should be good !

I have all the Stalker games but never game them a proper try apart from the first which coincided with Vistas Games For Windows Live so I only ended up using it as a benchmark Quote

I played the original a lot, and was annoyed by the same thing as every one else.. Getting shot by crack shots and not enough ammo. The rest, however, was stonking.Quote
