    I don't know.
    Maybe it's better to fed the vultures (ie Beth) then to fall into oblivion (pun intended). That's worth something I guess.

    "And that's not all! Also, our games could be played by retarded people! And you get two games for the price of one!".
    And I'm not insulting retarded people here.

    Another thing. Washington DC developer and STALKER universe, east European, soviet atmosphere? Yeah, right.


    But then again, I could be wrong.

    Well obviously Bethesda would move the new game's setting to DC.

    The game will start with your birth, and a few quotes from the bible.

    I'm glad the rumors are false.

    Besides them NOT ruining a beloved franchise the STALKER series has had 3 worthy games which as far as I'm concerned is enough to fulfill and complete it. Any further games would just force them to either re-hash stories or dilute the setting with inconsistencies.

    Sincerely,
    The Vault Dweller

    Yeah old fake news. Unless it is real news. Perhaps a viral campaign for relevance?

    Umad? A Bethesda STALKER would be over9000 better than anything else. At least media would say so.

    After watching a playthrough of the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game. It is amazing how much better it is than Bethesda's Fallout.

    I haven't been a PC Gamer for most of the last decade so I missed out on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and the first Far Cry.

    Just the layout of that first village and world is much better. The buildings weren't copied and pasted and the actual layout of the village was tight and fit together.

    In Fallout and the Elder Scrolls games they just fell like random buildings and set pieces. There's no flowing thread between them.

    I hope this rumor is false.

    if bethesda became the publisher of the next stalker, that would be kinda meh.

    publisher != developer


    the ukranian guys would develop it, and then let bethesda/zenimax release/sell them in certain markets like say aus or us due to bethesdas massive infrastructure world wide.

    It's not that massive. I remember Oblivion wasn't released by Bethesda here in Europe, rather 2k games or some shit like that.

    I would play it , but so would millions of others. Most would derive varying levels of enjoyment from it.
