    Because it worked for STALKER ?

    I mean game was announced like 5 years before release and in that time changed a lot from more open ended to more linear game.

    Huh... after doing some research, I'm getting the feeling this all about back-pedaling the 2021 release window.

    "Oh no, actually, 2.0.2.1. is a code, you guys! ;)"

    Haha on my phone. Stalker with the nature warping Area X zone from Annihilation would be neat.

    I mean that's what STALKER already is. Annihilation was an obvious takeoff on Stalker/Roadside Picnic. Not the other way around.

    Not talking about what inspired what just would be neat to have a zone that slowly expands over the map as you play and inside the zone lots of warping occurs. Could make a really good game i reckon. Lots of replayability if your actions can slow/accelerate the zones advance and certain hubs being hit by the creeping zone change the story or warp differently every time even, depending. Saw the silo on my shitty phone and thought maybe it was a lighthouse and they was maybe going to be similarities to the movie/book. Mods though.

    Oh, ok. I guess I see what you mean. The idea of the Zone is expanding has always been part of Stalker though, so even if they added it as a game mechanic I don't think it would be because of Annihilation.

    Interestingly enough the idea of the Zone making duplicate, psychic copies of people, like what happens in Annihilation (in the book anyway, I never watched the movie so I don't know if it had the duplicate stuff), was explored in the development document of Clear Sky (the mercenary was originally going to be tracking down his own double, and I think the twist was going to be that the player themselves were actually the zone duplicate, but didn't end up making it into the game.

    If this happens this will just kick the modding community into overdrive so I'm looking forward to this releasing regardless of whether it's shit or not. Worst case scenario they give SoC/CoC modders some inspiration and they add some new mechanics and new enemies to the old game.

    Does the modern GSC Gameworld even have anything in common with the old one that made Stalker?

    No but GSC Gameworld didn't either back in the day between releases of SoC/Clear Sky/Call of Pripyat. They all had different development teams. The fact that those games turned out so well despite the inconsistency and troubled developments is fucking astounding to me.

    I want a bunch of low-tier shit not even worth looting for variety among weak bandits. Lutys, 22 rifles, obrez ect.

    I just want Stalker 2 to follow the footsteps of Arsenal Overhaul, which alone made Call of Pripyat into a 10x better game. I want EVERY autistic AK variant and obscure Soviet era hunting gun.

    I want the game to have massive open world that's not populated by bandits or other human factions but only monsters, anomalies and few stalkers.
