More detailed information below:

Hello, Oleg! Very pleased with the news of the beginning of the development of the second Stalker, thank you very much. :) I would like to ask a few questions about it, would you mind?

Let's try, I'll answer what I can.

I'll start with the main question, which now interests the fans - when will the game announcement itself?

Here we need to be patient. The development is in its early stages, so the full-fledged announcement is unlikely to wait until next year.

What can you tell us about the new project? It will be a really great present for the fans and even a bit of a revelation. :)

No, not yet. Let's postpone the presents till the right moment.

As far as I know, the game will be created on a new version of the X-Ray engine. Will we see the Zone as photorealistic, as it were, or will the graphics be different?

Not entirely correct information. The game is being developed on a completely new engine, with all the latest technology. Still, we must admit that X-Ray is morally and physically obsolete.

There was a quest competition, can we say anything about the quests that were or will be included in the game?

The results of the contest are in. There were few good works, which the developers really liked. The results will be published on the sites where the contest took place in the coming days.

When will we see the screenshots of the new game? :)As soon as

we'll be ready to show them


We need to be patient.

Trips to the Exclusion Zone - will you still go there? Or will the existing material be enough for your work? :)

We go to the Zone regularly for inspiration and new materials. There's no way to do it without it.

Ambient in the game - do you already know who will write the background music? And will there be tracks from FireLake, a band many people love?

We'll see. I can't say anything yet.

How will the release of the second game in the series affect the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. book series? Won't it be renamed S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-2? :)

We must ask the "developers" of this project :)))



that we're talking about the books - when the beginning of the fourth literary contest is scheduled? :) After all, in a community of many who write, and write pretty well, the news can not but please them.

We will think about it.

Now here's a lot of different forums, although I'm only talking about the official forum of the company, a lot of topics with questions and suggestions for the developers - are there any ideas taken from the forum, that have already entered or will enter the game for sure? And mods too - here in CH a lot of details from AMK-mod (although somehow wrong to compare the prequel to the first game and the second game), and in S-2 is possible option to bring any fiches implemented in mods?

Ideas are gathered and discussed within the team. I plan to report the results of these discussions to the community in the form of periodic news on YaStalker.

Tell us about the team currently working on the second game. They said that after the release of "The Call of Pripyat" part of the team was disbanded, and how is it now? Is the development of the game going on with those who stayed, or did you bring back the old team/recruit a new one? How many people are working on the game itself?

The whole team is working in their sweats, no one is lazy. We are even short of hands - we are actively recruiting programmers now, if you want to help, check out the job vacancy page at About 50 people are working on the project at the moment.

At what stage of development now?

We are still at an early stage of development.

There is a fear that the world will end in 2012, predicted by the Maya. Well, forgive them, they had no idea about the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and what do you say? We will have time to play before the end of the world, or the end of the world is postponed indefinitely, until the release of the game? :)

If the end of the world depended on the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R., I would postpone to infinity:) But we are determined to get out on time, and then what will be.

Regarding the release date for the game, although it's still more of a tentative than accurate, but can it be pushed back by the need to finalize any details in the game?

It's too early a question. Anything can happen in 2012, including the end of the world. So why set yourself up for bad things to happen?

Will we see your presentation of S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-2 at the 2011 CSI?

We haven't decided where and how to show the game.

Jumping ahead a bit. Before the release of Zov Pripyat, our company conducted a very interesting event - an open playtest. Are you going to make the same playtest during the testing of the second game? :)

Yes, we are. This practice is very justified in terms of the necessary improvements to the game before release.

Regarding S-2, in one of the interviews Sergey Grigorovich said that the second game will also be a trilogy. Have you confirmed this after the official announcement of the start of development? Can we already talk about the approximate dates of the next games of the second series now, or is it too early?

I can say that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is planned for 2012.

Strikeball games based on motifs and appropriate entourage are very popular, will the world of the Alienation Zone develop in this direction? Last year during the game season held S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Real Player, but this year it was not - there was no time for game development?

Regarding military field games, there is an idea to create an official portal on this topic, for the convenience of communication and planning such events. There is a desire to hold official games in the world of S.T.A.L.K.E.R., so stay tuned.

Last year we organized S.T.A.L.K.E.R. -Fest. It pleased the fans of the game and aroused a storm of rave reviews. Is similar event planned for this year or in the near future? And where will it be held, if planned? A lot of fans are looking forward to it, because, as I remember, that festival was attended by people from different cities of Ukraine and even Russia.

This year it's unlikely we'll do another fest, but in the future - definitely! The festival was great and left only the most pleasant emotions.

Thanks for the interview, Oleg! I wish you luck in the development, and to our stalkers - patience while waiting for the second game to come out
