Does Stalker 2 live?

Earlier this month there were rumblings about the cancellation of Stalker 2 and the closure of developer GSC Game World. For a good while it really seemed like the project was dead, but there is still hope as the game’s official Twitter account states.

As recent post on the account reads: “Dear Stalkers: We will not be releasing any official news until around mid January. However there is cause for hope! Good hunting!”

Could the team have struck a deal with a publisher to get the game made? Did one of the team members have a very rich aunt die? Fingers crossed that January brings good news for this one.
