Bethesda Softworks has aquired the rights to the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. IP, and is developing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, according to a “very reliable source” of Ukranian blogger and marketing director Sergey Galyonkin.
Galyonkin claims Bethesda does not own the rights to the franchise, but have been licensed to publish and develop it.
Development on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is reportedly in the works for consoles and PC at a studio outside of Ukraine, using Bethesda’s technology.
