An official website popped up early this morning with little more than a title and a date of "2021".
Another S.T.A.L.K.E.R. sequel is underway at GSC Game World.

Moreover, no platforms have been announced yet either, which means that we'll have to wait and see if S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 will be playable on PC, PS4, Xbox One or if it will release exclusively for PC. The bad news is that it's not going to happen anytime soon: The Stalker 2 site now indicates that it'll be out in 2021.
In case you do not know about the series, let us tell you that it is an FPS with elements of horror and survival, where the events take place in The Zone, inspired by the exclusion zone of Chernobyl after the nuclear disaster.
As for the game engine, nothing has surfaced yet. Four years later GSC was back, announcing a new RTS game called Cossacks 3, and ever since the studio has been silent.
But to help quell concerns, the owner of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. developers GSC Gameworld, Sergiy Grygorovych, confirmed via Facebook that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was real.
