S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Coming To Consoles?
One of the more critically acclaimed and popular franchises on PC, it might go multiplatform in the future.
After S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl debuted to solid reviews, GSC Game World followed up with two more - Clear Sky and Call of Pripyat - and unsurprisingly, they're currently preparing yet another installment. This time, however, it might be coming to multiple platforms: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was recently announced and apparently, it's going to benefit "from an all-new multiplatform game engine that's being built in house." Dubbed "the next chapter" in the franchise, it now appears as if this true sequel will be available for several major platforms when it releases in 2012. The question is whether or not console gamers will be interested in the series; it's pretty well-known amongst PC gamers but those who don't normally play their games on a PC might be indifferent. Then again, if it drags in high review scores and plenty of recommendations, more consumers stand up and take notice.
We'll let you know if S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 ever gets officially confirmed for the PS3. If it does, we'll bring you the details.
