    As have been said, IP problems.

    In any case, I don't mind leaving out S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series as long as this new project is just as good, if not great.

    Damn....Stalker was a really unique game. (even though it ran a little off without .ini mods). Ill have to re-download my Steam copies to replay them again in the near future.

    They now can try some new ideas because it's not tied to STALKER name. Something better and less broken please :)

    Gives you the impression that I didnt like those game... Loved the first one, second one was playable after 6months from the release and last one never got to finish.

    Give it to a new company?

    Else it'll just sit there idle.

    Awwwwwwww....say it ain't so! The most atmospheric series out there, and made for the PC no less! I'm really, really let down by this news. :(

    Had a terrible morning, a terrible day at work (training new guy), a bunch of BS after work, and now I read this. I'm going to bed, going to forget this day ever happened.

    If they had the funding to buy the IP back then they wouldn't have any investor problems.

    Yeah, such a shame, but while it had many fans, it did have a fair amount of haters too, and unfortunately i just don't think slower paced SP FPS make that much money anymore.

    The Metro2033 dev's would be the logical successors, but would THQ take it on, and 4A Games probably won't have the time to do it anyway.

    Least we got the older games, and combined they have more gameplay value than every other SP FPS over the last several years put together.

    I'm just going to sit tight and see what it brings. If it has the great atmosphere of STALKER, I'll probably enjoy it but otherwise...meh.

    Yes, and it doesn't have to be a "STALKER" IP game, it can be called something else, but play and look a lot like stalker.

    If fact it seems like that is what the stalker team is doing anyway.

    But if any fans want to get together and make a spiritual successor to stalker count me in! I am programmer.

    Some big name publisher will make a sequal and say its better than the original. They however will completely demolish everything that was awesome about stalker, if fact I believe if the publisher does make a new stalker it will become far more like Call of Duty and far less stalker.
