STALKER remains in the shadows
THQ's interminably delayed first-person shooter STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl looks set to remain illusive for quite some time yet, as the publisher admitted today that the game won't be out until April 2006 at the earliest. The much hyped first-person shooter has for some time been regarded as a hit in-waiting for patient THQ, but GSC Gameworld's opus has been delayed for quite some time too, and has also been conspicuous in its absence from recent trade events. "We think that's going to be a ground breaking title when we launch it and we want to make sure there's enough time in the oven for it," chief Brian Farrell confessed. "We want to make sure it has the absolute highest possible game quality."
Farrell went on to concede that the game won't be out in THQ's current financial year, which ends on March 31st 2006, meaning that we could have to wait even longer to experience this toxic-themed FPS. The game has looked rather impressive when demonstrated, but anticipation inevitably dwindles with every delay, especially as THQ seem keen to avoid big name competition.
