GSC closed? S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 out of the Zone

  1. For all you avid STALKER fans -including myself, some disheartening news that GSC may be closing it's doors from this report at Rock,Paper,Shotgun

    It seems that the console crowd may have achieved what the Snorks, Bloodsuckers and anomolies could not...namely, kill Strelok.

    Hopefully the code lives on with another developer or the modding community :(

    Well of course it's going away. it was clever, wide open, didn't feel the need to spell it out for you, and lead you around with instructions for every step you took.
    Damn!

    Good news indeed, was so disappointed when I heard they were closing down. Hope they can actually get this game out.

    If they're re-using maps/models from the previous games they must be reasonably advanced in putting the game together. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was/is supposed to be PC and console, so I had a hope that if the game was integrating XAudio 2 and XInput libraries (needed for console development), then the game could well be DirectX 11.1, which utilizes both as well as DirectXMath and, by all accounts, provides a reasonable performance boost over DirectX 11.

    (sigh...)...This feels like Bungie.
