The series developer GSC Game World has sparked rumours that sequel in the franchise is in the works and will be ready to drop in three years' time after it uploaded a picture on its website that read: "S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2 - 2.0.2.1."

Fans will no doubt be pleased to hear that there is an actual date in place after GSC initially announced the project in 2011 but was forced to cancel in 2012.

However, it looks like the developer has decided to revive the plans.
