The team developing STALKER 2 has revealed a little more information about the game via a Q&A session on Facebook; including the news that the PC version will not need to be compromised for a multiplatform release.
When asked about the possible removal of PC features, the response from the team was “Since we develop primarily on PC, you won’t see any compromises in the PC version.”
A later question enquired about the PC interface, wondering if it would suffer from a cross-platform release with consoles – as games like Borderlands have in the past. In reply, the developers confirmed that it would not.
STALKER 2 will apparently also feature more of a “survival element” than previous titles in the post-apocalyptic RPG series, and introduce new mutants. In addition, it will support DirectX 11, resulting in “The key difference between the PC and console versions [being] the beauty of graphics.”
The title is due for a 2012 release at this point, and the specific console (or consoles) it’ll also be coming out on have not yet been confirmed. But let’s face it, it’s going to be one or both of PS3 and Xbox 360.
