Following initial reports in 2011 stating that their upcoming project, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, had been cancelled, GSC tweeted a complete denial of the cancellation as well as denying rumours that the studio had closed its doors. However, they then deleted the tweet and later said an official comment would be made on 12 December 2011. They stated, "We will do our best to continue. However, at this moment, nothing is certain."

Famous quotes containing the words world and/or game:

    You should go to picture-galleries and museums of sculpture to be acted upon, and not to express or try to form your own perfectly futile opinion. It makes no difference to you or the world what you may think of any work of art. That is not the question; the point is how it affects you. The picture is the judge of your capacity, not you of its excellence; the world has long ago passed its judgment upon it, and now it is for the work to estimate you.
    Anna C. Brackett (1836–1911)

    Old age is far more than white hair, wrinkles, the feeling that it is too late and the game finished, that the stage belongs to the rising generations. The true evil is not the weakening of the body, but the indifference of the soul.
    André Maurois (1885–1967)
