Damn, like most here I am a massive STALKER fan.

This is probably the most depressing news I've heard in years. I really hope someone good can finish the game. Maybe the Metro guys could pick it up and try to get away from the hallway shootery stuff for a while.

I think the only successor right now could be the Far Cry series, but with the addition of Borderlands-style numbers flying out of people, I'm skeptical.

Aww that sucks ... I really liked the first Stalker. It was such an immersive experience!

I was hoping for a more polished stalker game :(

If you pirated a STALKER game, Fuck You.

Pirating a STALKER game made me buy two STALKER games. Pirating Battlefield 2 is the reason I now own five Battlefield boxes. 
Grow up.
