    [​IMG]PC Gamer reports that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is being made with the Unreal Engine and will support modding.

    Today we got another reason to be hopeful-maybe even cautiously optimistic-as the official Stalker 2 Twitter feed revealed that the new game will use the Unreal Engine.

    [...]

    "User modifications help the world of the Zone to live on while we are busy with making a sequel, and we can't be more grateful for that," GSC Game World said in the announcement.

    As for whether Stalker 2 could end up as an Epic Games Store exclusive (Epic also makes the Unreal Engine), the studio said only that it "will talk about this later."

    I saw one announcement they made, and it looks like Epic kind of announced the game for GSC, without informing them they would do so.

    Anyway, given the original STALKER games (with the exception of Call of Pripyat), it would be prudent to wait a year or so until after release, so most bugs can be fixed. Or possibly a community patch can be made.
