GSC denies Stalker 2 cancelled rumour

UPDATE: GSC deletes Twitter denial.

UPDATE 1: GSC has deleted its Twitter denial of Stalker 2's cancellation.

ORIGINAL STORY: GSC Game World has denied a Ukrainian news report that claims Stalker 2 has been cancelled and the developer shut down.

Following the publication of a UkraNews.com report that claimed the promising open world shooter had been canned after GSC founder and CEO Sergei Grigorovich decided to close the company, the official Stalker Twitter page posted: "No we have not closed GSC or cancelled."

A source told UkraNews Grigorovich announced the closure of the company at a meeting of the workforce today. He supposedly did so for unspecified personal reasons.

Apparently Grigorovich was unhappy with the progress Stalker 2 had made, and Ukranian law enforcement was interested in taking control of the company, but this is speculation on the part of UkraNews.

Eurogamer has contacted GSC for comment.

Stalker 2 was announced last August, following an eye-opening announcement of 4 million sales for the series so far.
