STALKER 2 was officially announced last year – though it was perhaps a bit premature, since developer GSC Game World was reportedly still seeking a publisher at the time. The studio’s apparently confident enough in the announcement to bring around a fresh round of promotion for the game. GSC has brought a new website live with a tiny new look at the upcoming title.
At the very appropriate Stalker2.com URL, you’ll see a fresh bet of high-resolution art, featuring a man in a gas mask standing in front of a background of dilapidated factories. There’s a splatter of blood on his mask, and the sky is grey with ash. In short, it sure looks like a new STALKER game, just as the image we saw along with the original announcement did.
A foreboding music track is also available on the website, and the developers have also relaunched the game’s Twitter and added a flurry of activity to the official Facebook page. There’s also a tweet pointing toward the same 2021 release date posited in the announcement last year.
Both the Facebook and Twitter accounts promise “interesting” things ahead for STALKER fans, though we still don’t have any concrete idea of what STALKER 2 is actually going to look like.

Still, between this and the Borderlands 3 trailer, today has been a good day for long-suffering shooter fans. I’d make a joke about Half-Life 3 here, but it seems unwise to tempt fate quite that far.
