Quote:The GSC veterans have sent word that they are forming a new studio, Vostock Games, and will be making a game called Survarium, which is apparently a Stalker-like MMOFPS. Stalker 2 itself is “frozen” and the team will be focusing on the new game. They have tweeted: “All those asking about funding etc. That is not the issue. We were unable to secure the IP rights to continue with the Stalker franchise.” There will be a Q&A session with Oleg Yavorsky and Joe Willburn tomorrow on Twitter to explain the Survarium project in detail.
The new studio have also circulated a video about their plans, which you can see below.

We got three stalker games and an officially released alpha by the devs. If the owner of the stalker IP wants to go be stupid with it then so be it. Ill follow the devs instead even if its free to play.
Who knows, maybe it might end up like tribes and actually be a good f2p game.
