STALKER developer struggling

GSC Game World might be closed
Ukrainian developer GSC Game World, best known for the STALKER series, is apparently struggling. While details are sketchy, it is rumored that GSC owner Sergei Grigorovich informed staff last Friday that there were plans to close the studio.
Since these rumors have started, news from over the weekend and on Monday now indicate that some sort of an effort is on the way for the studio to continue. While Twitter reports initially denied the entire thing, those have since been replaced with Tweets indicating that the studio was going to do its best to continue, and nothing is certain yet.
GSC, known primarily as a PC developer with its STALKER series, has been working on STALKER 2 (which was initially said to be focused as the company’s first console title); later, however, developers from GSC indicated that the PC version was still the primary focus for the title.
