STALKER dev breaks silence on closure rumours

GSC Game World, Ukrainian developer of the STALKER series, has admitted that it is facing closure.

News broke last week that the studio was to close, with a Ukranian news site claiming founder and CEO Sergei Grigorovich had informed staff of his decision to drop the shutters on the Kiev-based studio for unspecified personal reasons.

GSC denied the report on Twitter, saying: "No we have not closed GSC or cancelled," but the Tweet was swiftly deleted. However, the developer has posted again this afternoon to say: "We will do our best to continue. However, at this point, nothing is certain."
