Epic could give some needed start-up money to help GSC here.
I'm still concerned about a "pretty" UE4 engine creating an ambient
and dangerous world like the Zone needs to be.
However, I am hopeful and wish them well.
Now, to find those videos about Gamescom 2019.
I'm retired and back to playing Oblivion Lost 3.1 so I'm in the mood for another game to look forward to.
Real art never goes out of style. The gameplay, ambient music, textures and color schemes of Stalker SoC and CS possess an timeless artistic quality (due to human talent) totally independent of video game technology developments. I'm sure they will appear just as good in another 12 years as well.
Well, there was the unconfirmed leak that Stalker 2 would use the Unreal 4 Engine. Epic Games is the developer of the Unreal Engine. Epic Games owns the Epic Store. It only makes sense for a deal with GSC about the Game Engine would include a deal about the distribution through the Epic Store. Sounds like GSC wants a dependable Game Engine with a smooth transition to publishing and distribution.
