STALKER was cancelled and you know it
STALKER was cancelled and you know it [ Game -> Update ]

There's been some rumblings lately, especially since GSC and THQ missed an appearance at E3 a few months back. They then promised to have a big demo at Germany's GC 2005, another extremely shallow and overblown example of the game industry. Of course they missed that. Now stores all over the world are dropping preorders, for the first time in three years neither GSC or THQ can estimate a release, and everybody's been very quiet overall. Except, not surprisingly, the same old PR guys (aka yes-men) who know less than you or I.

The ever optimistic Oblivion-Lost supposedly disspelled all rumors S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was cancelled after contacting said GSC yes man Oleg Yavorsky.

Indeed, we are planning a later show of the game, and obviously will arrange a special event for that. I don't know the details yet, but once the 'quiet' PR stage is over, we'll be shouting out loud about it, no doubt. We are also working out the best steps to take to cheer up the community a bit.
Sounds familiar. Earlier today THQ got right to the point about these rumors.
"These rumours are totally unfounded."
OK, but what happened to the multiplayer demo that is a year overdo? Or how about the groundbreaking "world AI system" which we still haven't seen or had confirmation it ever existed. Ladies and gentlemen, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. was cancelled and you know it.

If I'm wrong, who can honestly say they're still looking forward to playing? So many features, including co-op. were cancelled. It's a shell of a game that doesn't deserve any future attention.
