Stalker 2 Development Confirmed, Launches in 2021

Rewinding the clock 11 years back 2007 and we have the original STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl released, pitting gamers into a first-person shooter set in the Soviet-era nuclear power plant of Chernobyl. The project is now underway at GSC Game World.

There's bugger all info available at the moment, but fans of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. can rejoice: you're getting a sequel. A new S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is like a Russian Half-Life 3.

Hopefully they can finally pull it off this time, and hopefully we get to see something more at E3 in June.

HTC is working on a next-gen 'blockchain phone'
He left the company in 2015 to get into venture capital, but is now returning to HTC as Decentralized Chief Officer. The phone will reportedly feature a universal cryptocurrency wallet as well as a secure hardware enclave.

GSC Game World CEO Sergiy Grygorovych announced today in a very brief Facebook post that his company is developing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.

There's also murmurs of the game using the Unreal Engine 4 based on a Tweet by Epic Games' Sergey Galyonkin, though this hasn't been confirmed. It was rumoured that the studio would close (it did), that the game wouldn't be released (it wasn't), and that Ukrainian government intervention may have been the culprit (who knows).

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 has had a tumultuous development cycle, previously being announced and then later cancelled in 2011.
