S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 looked like it was dead in the water for a while, with reports that dev studio GSC Game World was going out of business. But then the Kiev-based collective resurfaced on Facebook this year and indicated that work was underway for the sequel to their acclaimed shooter. That was way back in January, though, and it's been relatively quiet since. Should fans be worried?

Not at all! The studio's official Twitter spat out a link to a video showing animation that's been built for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. All the shambling and shooting seen in the clip is the work of former GSC employee Sergey Zhukov and in a follow-up Tweet, GSC indicates that the "work done remains." So, keep on believing, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. fans, your post-nuclear apocalyptic shooting dreams are still alive.
