S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky gets delayed

Won't be out till September.

GSC Game World is confident that S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky will be out across Europe on 5th September.

The openworld PC shooter had previously been expected in August; a date set after Clear Sky missed initial "early 2008" forecasts.

Clear Sky, a prequel to S.T.A.L.K.E.R., casts the player as a mercenary flitting allegiances between various factions in the nuclear wasteland of Chernobyl.

Technology has been improved to make enemies smarter and the game run more smoothly; some of the areas that put dampeners on our enjoyment of S.T.A.L.K.E.R first time around.

Thankfully, developer GSC seems to have learned the lessons of over-ambition and doing too much at once. Clear Sky has taken only one and a half years to develop, and not six years like S.T.A.L.K.E.R..
