The context of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, which occurred on April 26, 1986, is quite interesting as a theme for all types of works. Video games have not been unrelated to this and the best example in this regard has been GSC Game World, the Ukrainian studio responsible for the horror FPS series S.T.A.L.K.E.R. that has just announced that STALKER 2 is in development.
A few moments ago, GSC Game World announced on its official site that they are developing Stalker 2, a title that had a previous phase of creation more than 7 years ago and was canceled in 2012.
The announcement was integrated into the studio review and there it included a link that leads to what will be, at some point, the official site of Stalker 2. However, not all is good news for fans of the franchise, because along with the announcement and confirmation of the title, its launch window was announced and Stalker 2 is scheduled to debut in 2021, so there are 3 long years of waiting still.
In case you do not know about the series, let us tell you that it is an FPS with elements of horror and survival, where the events take place in The Zone, inspired by the exclusion zone of Chernobyl after the nuclear disaster. The story is based on a series of experiments that were carried out at the nuclear power plant, which caused a second disaster that had serious consequences at different levels, causing mutations in flora, fauna, and humans.
So far, the STALKER franchise has 3 titles: S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl; S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky of 2008 and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat of 2009.
