EDIT: Seems to be old news, sorry for disappointing you

Stalker License bought by bitComposer

According to Steam, bitComposer has bought the Stalker License:

"S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a reputable brand with a long history of success. To date, the series has sold many millions of units worldwide," bitComposer executive Wolfgang Duhr said in today's announcement. "Naturally, we'd like to tap into the success of this series, and we see a great deal of potential for the future."

bitComposer was the publisher of Stalker: Clear Sky in Europe.

I just hope they ask Vostok Games develop any games based on that IP. I haven't seen anything about Survarium for about 1½ years, maybe they are open to trying the good old Stalker IP they have so much experience at.

Any thoughts?

Yes, I hope this is not a rumor, like Bethesda, but it was confirmed on their page, and then not a lie, I'm waiting for the Survarium, let's see if it will be a fun game.
So far in bitComposer Games have not seen them talk this already developing the game, sent a message on 01/12/2014, saying:
Stalker 2 is forgotten?
They replied:
Stalker 2 is never forgotten.
Let's see if Stalker 2 not forgotten this, for me it was never forgotten.
For if they release Stalker 2, there must be new weapons, new maps, costumes, artifacts, if the same maps, weapons, anomalies, mutants, factions, can drop the hand and stand with Lost Alpha same.
I do not know if you have visited, if not a look of this beautiful mod here.

Stalker License bought by bitComposer

In view of the rumors appearing in press, we find it necessary to inform that GSC Game World and Sergey Grigorovich remain to be the sole owners of all the intellectual property rights to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. game series and the brand overall, including all the trademarks, the game universe, the technology etc. This can be easily verified with the trademark services online.

From time to time news on the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. brand purchase by this or that company appear over the Internet. We relate such a keen interest in the brand to its exceptional popularity. Even the purchase of rights to create a “Roadside picnic” book-based game by a small publisher is presented as the continuation of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. franchise. We have doubts regarding the mentioned product by bitComposer (the publisher of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat on some territories), since the latter has significant debts in terms of fulfilling the obligations under the existing contract between our companies.

Have been playing for about a month .

Found it's at least as good as SoC so made a donation Dezowave's website.

Regarding the news I posted: Looks like old news popping up again. I just hope for more Stalker games that stays in the atmosphere.

So did I. They also state to contact them for a gift after you have made a donation. I have no idea what gift they can give if they are already asking for a donation.

I think it is having your name in the game.

Have just mailed them. Curious as to what happens.
