    I'm waiting for the inevitable delay announcement 1 month before release for another year, then when that comes around, announce it'll be delayed indefinitely and finally come out 3 years later.

    It's traditional.

    They released Cossacks 3 a couple of years ago.

    This is somewhere up there with Half-Life 3 being announced though. Good times.

    And then I remember they announced Stalker 2 seven years ago and then cancelled it a year later.

    There's been nothing like it since CoP.

    Are most of the original team still at GSC?

    I'm pretty sure a fair bit left to make Metro at 4A.

    Now rumoured to be built using Unreal Engine 4 instead of their X-Ray engine.

    Hopefully we get a little trailer or screen shot sometime this year. Still hyped, but in an ideal world would love a another Stalker on a modern day X-Ray engine. How much of that atmosphere in the game is down to the engine?

    A little trailer of what though, if it's supposed to be released in 2021 then I doubt there's anything of gameplay substance to show really.

    I mean at least UE4 means it won't be quite such a janky mess? Maybe. Although it might lose some of its charm given that.

    The jank was half the charm, but if they can port the A-Life engine to UE I can deal with it,it was Stalkers heart and soul. Along with twiddling about with clicky, pingy weapon attachments.

    It created the finest moments of emergent gameplay I have ever seen from any game.

    It was also sadistically hard quite frequently, I've never pressed F5 so much.

    Aye, the random encounters in STALKER haven't really been matched since. Stumbling upon some mutated warthog chasing a grunt, which both get sucked into an anomaly. Good times.
