Stalker series has achieved something of a cult status on PC. It had an odd development history with origins in Russia and it featured a story and setting based on the Chernobyl disaster that resulted in a whole town Pripyat, being evacuated after Nuclear meltdown.
Stalker, which is more commonly referred as S.T.A.L.K.E.R is getting a sequel as announced by Russian developer GSC Game World. The official website is live right now and it doesn’t really have anything interesting aside from the logo with the tease of more information being shared at a later date.
This news was shared by the owner of GSC Game World, Sergiy Grygorovych, on his official Facebook profile. Their website has also confirmed that they are currently working on the sequel to Stalker, however details around it are still shrouded in mystery.
This is perhaps one of the most shocking announcement in the lead up to E3 2018. This was a first person shooter that was loved by fans and basically achieved cult classic status due to its unique appeal and open world horror. There have been attempts to create a similar game but none of them come close to matching the quality of the original.
Stalker 2 is currently listed for 2021. It remains to be seen what approach the developers decide to take for the sequel, but it should be interesting to see nonetheless.
