You're probably right but we have precious little else over which to get excited these days, better to live the illusion while we can and get disappointed later. Look, even the Britbong managed to find some joy in life, and he has to live on a storm-covered, freedom-hating rock. If he can, so can you.

>Are the original developers in any way involved

It's the original studio.

Owner of the studio basically went full slav, he axed S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 (actually out of quality concern, didn't want to milk the magic too much as it was too similar to the others ones. The thing was always his brainchild first and foremost), then dropped of the map for a long while, company still existed as an empty shell original dev's went to work on different games (Metro series, Survarium, Escape from Tarkov).

However the company has been restored to working status for a while now, they release Cossaks 3 (which was their other series) and is exactly what fans expected from it (it's a slight evolution of the first one with better graphics and the same gameplay), so there is actual hope they won't fuck it up.

Probably won't come out before 2027 though…

It's been a long time since I last thought about this – wasn't the studio bought up an forcibly dissolved by the publisher at some point?

>It's been a long time since I last thought about this – wasn't the studio bought up an forcibly dissolved by the publisher at some point?

No. Most of the reporting on it is a prime example of western journalism. Company owner just showed up one day and decided to close down the studio just like any shop would. Then THQ went under and a lot of wild rumors about what happened to the rights and whatnot that were taken as official.

But the company never stopped to exist, it just didn't do anything, it wasn't bought out, nor the rights ever changed hands or anything.

It's basically the owner just saying "fuck it" taking his money, fired the staff and went to vacation.

In fact both Survarium and Metro use part of the stalker 2 code and assets in what would be blatant copyright infringement if this shit wasn't happening in Ukraine because the employees and the boss largely disagreed on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 direction and just took a lot of office supplies home with them…

I wish someone in Japan would get a license to develop Shadow of Fukushima. Canonically it would be a bit of a stretch but wandering through wasted parts of Japan just gets my boner going.

More pistols, less armor, because its not post soviet wildlands, but mascots with anime powers fought by men in haphazard clothing with surgical masks just everywhere while trying to evade the japanese govt. sounds like a good game to me.

I could also see North korea being a good background.

I mean that, why would it be that way? There's absolutely no indication GSC have cucked out.

Cossacks 3 wasn't that way, the studio is Slavic instead of being from London or California or some other pozzed shithole and the devs haven't said anything that would imply they're cancerous SJWs.

That might have been the case if GSC was in somewhere Pozzed like Europe or the US. Also im pretty sure the head of GSC had an ultra-nationalist right wing group symbol on his facebook profile picture a while back.

There are two or three references to drugs across all 3 games and one reference to a Freedomer boning a bloodsucker, but because Duty reminds /pol/fags of their favorite failed nation, they have to pretend that Freedom are total degenerates - regardless of the fact that Dutyers are the sorts of authoritarian fuckwads that would confiscate weapons from everyone but themselves if they could get away with it. When it comes to actually getting shit done, Freedom generally comes out on top.

Don't forget that Duty was born from the autistic shit fit of some Captain from the Ukrainian Army that decided that it'll be fine to LARP as fucking Colonel Kurtz and make his own private militia, only to get trapped in a spatial anomaly and killed himself. And when Doody found out they tried to hide it and bribe the player.

Most of the Duty guys seem incompetent regarding anomalies too.

Each time in SoC after raiding the Freedumb base, the Duty guy in charge kept walking into those electrical anomalies aling the road and every else gets BTFO. Either by the field of said anomalies or by a single loner stalker who stuffs all the corpses into the same barrel fire.

I posted this in the /vg/ thread, but it bears repeating.

>Best Case Scenario (Unlikely)

It plays like Shadow of Chernobyl, except with shiny new graphics, excessive gun autism, first person item use animations for everything, minimal-to-zero HUD, completely overhauled A-life system, dynamic faction relations and territory control, anomalies that randomly move and dis/appear after an emission, and a whole bunch of other goodies I couldn't name.

And as long as fantasizing, I want a physical boxed copy with the game data actually on the disc instead of just a steam key, a novella-thick instruction manual, and a coupon for a free blowjob.

>More Likely (Better)

It plays like Call of Pripyat with shiny new graphics. Heavily scripted and narrative driven, anomalies limited to clearly marked areas, MAP and HUD objective markers, meaningless binary plot choices, no a-life at all with shit just spawning on top of you, and so forth. Hits the high points of what made the original good despite being a shallow and dumbed down shadow of what it should be.

>More Likely (Worse)

It plays like Fallout 5 / Far Cry 6 : This Time in Russia. Now exclusively on Playstation, Xbox, and PC. Pre-order the GOTY version to unlock the lesbian transgender muslim character skin. And stashes are replaced with loot boxes.

>Worst Case Scenario

No matter what I think up, it could always be worse. Stalker themed PUBG clone, anyone?

No. Worse case is EA deciding to buy out the devs or the devs going SW Battle front with yearly re-releases like the battlefield serries

You could try the Big Bad Boss pack for CoC 1.5R6. It has Arsenal Overhaul and Open Scopes integrated in, as well as other mods that affect firearms, damage, and graphics. Unlike the separate weapon mods for CoC, the AO in that pack is modified to work with 1.5R6, so you don't have to downgrade to 1.4. Still nothing substantial for 1.5R7 though.

I hope you mean something like pic related. If not, I'm fucktarded.


Since the other strelok mentioned mod packs, Roadside Picnic has AO3 integrated to, yet I haven't tried myself. Recently the CCCP package sorry for the redundance seems interesting.

Btw anyone know why the full Atmosfear 3 addon for CoC got deleted in Moddb? Shit is majestic and I managed to grab it while it lasted.

I see this is a good thing. The fact that they haven't found a publisher yet means that the decision to make a new STALKER game wasn't made by a publisher looking for a cash-grab, but by the design team who evidently care about the project.

721a5a No.583104


You know the Golden Rule?

He who has the Gold makes the Rules.

Furthermore, there is a corollary to the Golden Rule.

If you want to play by your own Rules, be prepared to supply your own Gold.

Hitching themselves to a publisher makes them beholden to said publisher.

a910c0 No.583106


True, but the more that is done before a publisher takes hold, the less incentive the publisher has to make changes, because the more work the publisher demands be rolled back, the more money it will end up costing them. And even discounting that, having work done in advance lets them make a more informed decision about which publisher to go to: they can show what they already have to publishers A, B, and C, and based on what "suggestions" each one makes as a precondition for signing the contract, they can make an educated guess as to which one will fuck with them the least. It's not a guarantee by any means, but it does provide a bit of insurance that wouldn't be there if they had gone to the publisher first, and only then started a design document.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but a design document is essentially…

>here's what we want to do with the game

>and if we're really enthusiastic we might lay out some workflow and gantt charts

The only vidya-specific reference I have is the Doom Bible, which is probably a bad example as the majority of it was never used and it got Tom Hall fired because he spent all of his time working on autistic documentation nobody ever wanted in the first place while the rest of the team made it up as they went along letting ideas evolve naturally.

But anyway, if the design document is all they have, with no code or assets to speak of, then there's no insurance against publisher meddling because they have yet to do any of the actual game making work.

8d7d32 No.583118


Deus Ex and Fallout also have publicly released bibles, but they're all about the universe instead of design.

He's actually right, the developers behind the engine went off to form 4A and release Metro. That's most of the reason why the game was so buggy.

684c24 No.584719


Meh Metro itself wasn't that good concerning bugs and restricted the freedom of the player to explore the world.

Yeh I'm not a huge fan of it either, I'm just saying that it is indeed the case that a bunch of the higher-level SoC devs fucked off to go make it.

That's right. GSC's management burned through a lot of development teams making Shadow of Chernobyl, Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat.
