While this is certainly bad news, the folks over at GSC Game World has formed a new studio called Vostok Games and they’re now working on a new project. Sadly, Vostok has not reached an agreement with the rights owner regarding future use of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. IP.
Vostok is now currently working on a F2P MMOFPS with the working title of Survarium. They also had this to say regarding their future game.
The concept of Survarium is a next evolution step for the idea of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. we’ve been working on for the last ten years…Survarium will go way further forcing mankind to fight for survival not only within the closed area of Chernobyl zone, but also far beyond.
Survarium is set to be out next year for the PC. The game’s first concept art can be seen as the post’s headline image.
