STALKER was a unexpected hit when it launched on PC back in 2007, it was ambitious and unforgiving – and also showed a view of the mysterious irradiated zone of Chernobyl in Ukraine (although the USSR when the disaster happened).
For years fans have called for a sequel to appear, and although the creators responsible for creating this dark masterpiece, CSG Game World, has crumbled, some hope for the title has been on the cards for a little while, now however things could be even more hopeful.
In a blog post has appeared online stating that Fallout 3 and Elder Scrolls developer Bethesda may be interested in snapping up the series rights.
Heard from a “reliable source”, Ukrainian blogger Sergey Galoyonkin states that Bethesda are now in possession of the rights to extended universe of STALKER. However CSG Game World have not sold the rights to the brand.
Now CSG Game World are working on a brand new title known as Survarium, so don’t expect them to be producing STALKER 2 any time soon – however if the rumours are true, Bethesda could well be lining up to integrate the extended universe rights into Fallout somehow.
Fallout Chernobyl anyone?
Typically Bethesda declined to comment.
