STALKER 2 in 2012

STALKER 2 is in development, GSC Game World has announced in a short blurb on its website. And “officially,” they say.

Actual details on the title aren’t offered, but CEO Sergiy Grygorovych does note it won’t be no pushover; expect a “big game” that’ll act as “the next chapter of the mega-popular game.”

It’s also said the shooter RPG will not be recycling the first game’s engine. Instead, it’ll run on “completely new multi-platform technology” — count on a console release then — once again developed by GSC itself.

It’s going to be a wait, though; the game won’t ship until 2012.
