STALKER 2 reveals first screenshot as a coronavirus special treat

Almost a decade after it was first announced, and then cancelled, GSC Game World has proven that STALKER 2 is still on its way.

Thanks to the TV show everyone knows the name Chernobyl nowadays, but back in 2007 it was a more obscure reference, especially as there were a number of other elements that inspired S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow Of Chernobyl.

Borrowing much from Russian film Stalker, itself a loose adaptation of the novel Roadside Picnic, the game was an innovative mix of first person shooter and survival horror, with some of the same team going on to work on the Metro Exodus series.

Others though have stuck with it, and while developer GSC Game World went bust and had to reform in order to get the project restarted, STALKER 2 is still going ahead – and the screenshot above proves it.

‘A lot of you are joining social isolation now. That’s why today, on a very special occasion, we are ready to slightly uncover the mystery of what we are working on. This is the first glimpse of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2’, added the post.

‘Consider it as our humble present, with more to come in 2020.’

The screenshot doesn’t give anything away, but it does seem to share the same foreboding atmosphere and unexplained weirdness of the original.

There doesn’t appear to be a publisher involved yet, but hopefully the game will have the same open-ended role-playing elements and what were at the time very ambitious graphics.
