S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Canceled, Developer Reassembles and Announces Free-to-Play MMOFPS

Well, it has finally happened. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 has been canceled. The news broke just a little while ago and I am sure many of you, myself included, are disappointed it came to this. GSC Game World, developer of the series, has officially closed its doors as well. However, all is not lost as members of the development team formed a new studio last month called Vostok Games. The team announced development on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is "frozen," as Vostok was unable to secure the rights to continue making it. Vostok will still carry the idea of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series on in a new free-to-play MMOFPS tentatively called Survarium, which will be a PC-exclusive slated for a launch by the end of the next year. A spiritual successor may not be what the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. faithful were hoping for, but at least it will be something. Best of luck to Vostok Games with its new endeavor, and I look forward to seeing progress on the new title.
