A sad, sad day for people who enjoyed the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. world as much as I have. Sunk countless hours in SOC and played with and without mods many, many, times right till the end.Wasn't much for Clear Sky but Call of Pripyat was enjoyable but sadly there aren't too many mods out there for it.
I am disappointed that Stalker 2 from the looks of it won't see the light of day. They cite PC development as part of the problem but also a failed console development contract. I am gonna go out on a limb here and say that Stalker 2 probably wouldn't have done to well on consoles, much harder to play and much less forgiving of mistakes than most FPS's out there (probably would have been changed to make it easier with a controller but that would have a negative backlash from the PC community).
Just disappointed that may favorite PC FPS franchise is going to end.
On a side note there are many excellent mods out there for the games that breath new life into the game world.
