It seems veterans of GSC Game World were tired of the on again, off again rumours surrounding S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2, with a bunch of them forming a new studio named Vostok Games.
Their first project? A massively multiplayer online first-person shooter called Survarium, which will have properties similar to their previous work with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Word on the street is that Vostok wanted to create the MMO in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R universe, but were unable to secure the rights.
While GSC Games still retain that S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 is still in development, this new announcement seems to bring a little closure to fans of the series. We'll be watching this one with a watchful eye.
