STALKER 2 Is Gone, Vostok Games Formed

It seems that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is officially gone, now that a great many of GSC Game World's developers have moved on over to a new company, Vostok Games. On their new website they confirm that Stalker 2 was basically shut down back in December of 2011. They are creating a new game, Survarium, a free2play MMO that is set in the near future in a world where a large scale environmental catastrophe has taken place. You may be thinking, damn it, another post-apocalyptic FPS? Well, yeah, but to be fair they've been doing that kind of game since the first Stalker back in 2002. Survarium looks to have the same feel of Stalker, with crazed animals all over the place, cities overrun by vegetation that are filled with unique areas and believable areas.

That is the only piece of concept art for the game so far, but I really don't know about the idea of making a Stalker-ish game into a F2P MMO. Although, I was just talking to someone the other day about how Stalker like game could possibly be the kind of FPS MMO that might be unique and interesting. I will be watching how this game develops and they are planning to release it in late 2013. Check out their two new pages below for more info. Thanks for reading.
