Stalker 2 development suspended

Due to Russian aggression on Ukraine the development of Stalker 2, a highly anticipated sequel to Stalker series games, has been suspended.


Stalker 2 development suspended

That information is hardly surprising news since main office of the developer, GSC Game World, is located in Kiev, capital city of Ukraine. According to the GSC they could go on with development, but in current situation it is more important for their team members to take care of their families and keep them safe than concentrate on Stalker 2.

It’s hard to argue with the GSC statement - what is going on in Ukraine is hardly a normal circumstances to work by any means and no game is more important than safety of your loved ones.

According to GSC Game World they will not give up on development of Stalker 2 and after the war end they will deliver the title. That statement however, as encouraging as it may sound, brings back the problem I mentioned times and times again - don’t pay money for product that might never be delivered.

While I wish the best to Ukrainians in their fight for freedom and independence from evil empire next door, it is possible that Stalker 2 will never be finished or will be finished in 5 or 10 years time. I know that mention of money at times like this sounds tactless to say the least, but I only mention it as a simple reminder - paying for something that might be one day delivered to you makes no sense. Like in this case - it is not GSC Game World fault that the madman started the war, it is not their fault the progress was stopped, but still they won’t be able to fulfil their obligations.

If you paid already for Stalker 2 you might one day get the game you paid for, now millions of Ukrainians are in desperate situation, you could give that money to f.e. Red Cross that is helping them, and actually make a difference in this world. But you already spent it. On a video game. That might never be delivered.

Why Stalker 2 will most likely fail

We just gained some details of the upcoming Stalker 2 (or rather S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2) game, but it is scarce info to be honest. And that makes me fear it will be a failure on premiere. Here is why...


Stalker 2 postponed until September

GSC Game World has done it again - they postponed the premiere of Stalker 2. Again. Once more. Yet again. The umpteenth time. And that is the whole news.


The curious case of LanG Wall

This curious case is slightly different from previous ones - this time it is not a story of misguided decisions or strange perseverance... Although it might be, because this case is really, really curious.

Before you drop the I word

Or rather the IGMMOIG word. I know, it's not really a word, it's acronym, but "I'm Gonna Make My Own Indie Game" is such a long thing to say. Yes, each week, each month, perhaps even each day someone ...
