Work continues on STALKER 2

GSC Game World has said it is still working on STALKER 2 despite recent reports that the studio was to close its doors.

Last month a Ukranian news site claimed that Sergei Grigorovich, founder and CEO of the Kiev-based studio, had decided to close the company for unspecified personal reasons. A post on the official STALKER Facebook page, however, reveals that GSC is still in business.

"The Stalker team is extremely happy," the post reads. "Why? Because we are continuing work on Stalker 2 after the holidays."

It's welcome confirmation that the studio is still in business; a tweet denying the original report was swiftly deleted, and a subsequent tweet did little to dispel fears that GSC was to close its doors.

"We will do our best to continue," it said. "However, at this point, nothing is certain."
