S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Franchise Purchased by bitComposer
We've just received word that bitComposer Entertainment has acquired the rights to create games based on the STALKER franchise from Boris Natanovich Strygatsky. According to the press release, this is the second popular brand acquired purchased by the studio in the past few years.

"The acquisition of the S.T.AL.K.E.R. license serves as an important cornerstone for the further international orientation of bitComposer Entertainment AG," says Stefan Weyl, member of the bitComposer Entertainment AG executive board. "For us, this brand represents a bridge to an important segment of triple-A products and a milestone in the history of the company. We would like to express our gratitude to Boris Natanovich Strygatsky."

"S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a reputable brand with a long history of success. To date, the series has sold many millions of units worldwide," says Wolfgang Duhr, member of the bitComposer Entertainment AG executive board. "Naturally, we'd like to tap into the success of this series, and we see a great deal of potential for the future."

Anyway, I hope this means we'll see S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 sooner rather than later.

Also, don't forget that GSC, the creators of the original STALKER game, are currently working on a completely separate project called Survariumn.

The situation is a little fucked, Bitcomposer thinks GSC never had the license; Sergey Galyonkin, The director of marketing at Nival says they bought the roadside picnic universe and the stalker (without the dots) license for those books and Bitcomposer is adamant that it bought S.T.A.L.K.E.R while GSC is yet to comment on any of it at all.

Strugatsky's ( no Strygatsky) stalkers is not S.T.A.L.K.E.R. It's not even Stalker, which is Tarkovsky's movie. It's Roadside Picnic which is something completly different. I mean, no Cernobyl.
And not GSC is making Survarium, but Vostok games. I don't even believe that GSC still exists.
