A tweet from GSC Game World “To answer the multitude of questions we’ve been getting,
#Stalker2 is currently in development, yes. However there is no release date yet.” Confirms the game is still being worked on. The first game was a big struggle for them to get publisher support and this seems it might have a similar problem but at least they haven’t abandoned the franchise.
