It looks like the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise has walked into an unforeseen anomaly (in this case, a squabble over copyrights) and the results aren't pretty: the developers have stopped all work on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. Luckily, though, all is not lost. Source: Gametrailers I can't speak much for the quality of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game(s, if you count the expansions), but everything I've seen and heard about it seems pretty nice. I was following the sequel with some interest, so this is definitely a disappointment. Still, the new game is certainly a new direction for the developer, so hopefully it'll work out. Survarium is set to release on PC sometime towards the end of 2013. While we wait, how about some music to brighten the mood?
