This Could Be Leaked Stalker 2 Art

By Jim Rossignol on December 10th, 2011 at 11:10 am.


There was a bunch of art posted here yesterday (thread deleted) from a source which purported to be a former artist at GSC. The images appear to be a couple of environmental scenes and a bunch of concept art. It might make for decent wallpaper which you can gaze at, thinking about what could have been…

    So there’s the knife in the wound. And now there’s Jim turning it.

    Looks great indeed (and the screenshots are really on the “we have more details, but look, some items still look cut with an axe, so you remember we are the ones doing it”)

    Ouch, that hurts…

    I think http://blog.ascian.me/2011/12/leaked-screenshots-concept-art-and.html is where the art was leaked. There is also more art to grab there. 30 or so pictures in all.

    Darn, looks like it would’ve been rather picturesque.

    I was also hoping that this time around they’d make a much more open landscape like Skyrim or Boiling Point, rather than the stiched together areas of the previous games.

      how can you tell it wouldnt have been from only looking at some concept art?

      I didn’t say it wouldn’t, only that I was just hoping it would have been. Now we’ll never know of course.

    Looks like … Stalker?

  13. wu wei says:

    For some reason, the light in the water tower in the topmost image is so very evocative of STALKER to me.

  14. faceface says:

    It’s too soon. We need to mourn.

    This is like looking at pictures of your dead puppy as you drag his stiffening carcass out into the garden.

    Official announcement on monday.
    I would not be surprised if this was all PR stunt of gog’s variety. Free publicity, saddened gamers followed by trailer and game reveal.

    Well I sure hope that is the case.

    • MichaelPalin says:

      Many people were pissed at the GOG stunt, but, at least, they were careful enough not to use certain words and everything turned out well. If this is a PR stunt, people is going to be REALLY mad at GSC, myself included. At this point, if I could choose, I’d preferred the closure to be truth.

    • Jerakal says:

      I would not, I’d rather know that a few months down the road I could get my hands on the sequel to one of the best FPSs I’ve ever played.

  19. Cael says:

    It physically hurts to look at these :(

  20. Quaib says:

    Oh COME ON.

    4A Games or some other PC dev or backer HAS to step in.

    This HAS to be a joke.

    IMO STALKER was the best FPS of the decade. Nothing comes close in the field of pure unadulterated, uncasualised, unconsolised, unapolagetically buggy but also unapolagetically brilliant PC gaming.

    • Unaco says:

      Sacrilege! If GSC don’t make it, it aint STALKER.

    • Tuco says:

      @Quaib: Word, man. You’re so right.

    • DigitalSignalX says:

      I’m curious how many assets are actually in place for the game, if it can be picked up “duke style” by another Dev. Or have they only storyboarded and worked on proof of concept type stuff which means a new party would have to start from scratch. The second scenario imo makes a buy-out of the IP very unlikely.

    • Gnoupi says:

      Imagine Epic making Stalker 2.

      Realize now that it’s better left untouched.

    • lijenstina says:

      Heh many of the 4A devs were ex GSC. In a sense, it would be a…. Mutated, Zombie GSC. :)

  21. hymnharmonia says:

    Some of these are sort of… badly drawn.

  22. Unaco says:

    C’mon people… I’m disappointed in the lack of a pun thread in the comments of this article. What has RPS become?

    Shall I get us started?

    I guess you could say Sergei Grigorovich chose the Nuclear Option for the future of his company.

    • Valvarexart says:

      I think the development team has broken down to a form where it is no longer active.

    • DigitalSignalX says:

      GSC used to be making Stalker 2 till they took an arrow to the knee.

      (stolen from thread)

    • The Godzilla HUnter says:

      It looks like GSC weren’t able to stalk their way out of this one.

    • The Magic says:

      too soon for puns buddies… i just dont feel up to it

  23. westyfield says:

    The one with the two guys being dragged towards an anomaly is beautiful.

    Hey, Fork Parker, if you’re reading this – cancel your wife’s titjob, buy the Stalker IP and hire the ex GSC employees. You know it makes sense!

  24. adonf says:

    I can’t see the whole pictures because my screen is too small and this plugin doesn’t let me center-click or control-click to open in a new tab (Yes there’s still right-click + new tab option but my point is that this picture plugin is crap and is way worse than having no plugin at all.)

      Yes, and then the box to close the popup is way off to the side of the window, and scrolling only scrolls the actual web page, behind it. I had to do some window mangling to get the picture to close…

  25. Navagon says:

    I just hope that someone picks this up and finishes it. Over two million sales on the first game is not to be sniffed at. COME ON, PUBLISHERS! We need our COD antidote, dammit!

  26. Hoschimensch says:

    They look so gorgeous. Exactly how i like STALKER. It feels like a kick in the nuts to look at them right now but at least I have a few new Wallpapers.

  27. Sapper Gopher says:

    A dark tunnel and a bunch of dilapidated buildings? That doesn’t look S.T.A.L.K.E.R. at all!

  28. El_Emmental says:

    woaw, and now my comment signaling a comment bug is tagged as spam, the comment system must have been hit by an anomaly!

    I hate you. This is just sadistic.
