Lots of mixed news. Some sources say some very different things. In Russian news it was eluded that the owner is in some sort of trouble with Ukrainian government and had their assets seized. Some sources site the reason as general financial trouble, while others say it is not closing. Regardless of the circumstances, it will be sad to see them go. In spite of them releasing incredibly buggy games, they were very good in environment, challenging and had some originality. If they sell off s.t.a.l.k.e.r. I hope it is to 4A / 1C or to another dev like CD Projekt that would do it justice. I would rather see it die than end up in the hands of one of the big publishers.
