Hey guys!
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.

Let's hope Stalker 2 has the same amount of love 12 years later:

12 Years in the Zone: ‘S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl’
Like Dark Souls, Shadow of Chernobyl can be hostile, unfriendly, and off-putting.

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.

Hi!
Didn't GSC claim to self-finance the game? At least I hope so, money from external sources may come with all kinds of strings attached (even regarding the artistic direction).

Yeah. I don't care about the exact engine, as long as the developers are free to choose the best one for the job (rather than being forced to use the wrong one for reasons of business politics).

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.

Hopefully a tempting distribution deal won't make GSC compromise with an unsuitable engine for the game.

STALKER 2 ANNOUNCED 5-15-18

From GSC Game World:

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is powered by Unreal Engine.

Frankly speaking, we wanted to hold this particular announcement for a while. But our colleagues at Epic accidentally made a New Year surprise for everyone, including us.

GSC Game World team constantly searches for the best technologies to work with, and UE was the most suitable choice for us.

It gives the opportunity to make the game you wait for with the atmosphere of tension and mystery — the flesh and blood of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. universe. Additionally, Unreal Engine harmonizes well with our goal to make modding more easy and accessible. User modifications help the world of the Zone to live on while we are busy with making a sequel, and we can't be more grateful for that.

Yes, we know what you are thinking about, but this announcement has nothing to do with platforms or digital stores. We will talk about this later.

Anything else? Ah, sure — a loaf of last year's bread. Both a stalker snack and a bit of slavic humour.

Happy New Year!

Lemme just correct that for you:


---QUOTATION---
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is powered by Epic-store Money*
---END QUOTATION---



*(i.e. by 'Chinese investors' (Tencent, which is the largest gaming-company in the world, located in China, with all that which that entails), Fortnite-moneys (that mainly come from sucking kids dry, shoving new dance-motes down their throats) and foul-play ("if you throw enough money at it, you can buy yourself out of any legit contract." )

Wonder what this part means: "...our collegues at Epic accidentally made a New Year surprise for everyone, including us"?
