S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a radioactive shooter franchise set in the nuclear-blasted wilds of Chernobyl, full of mutants, anomalies, and other irradiated hazards. The franchise has been quiet for years, but remains a cult hit on PC, where modders and fans painstakingly repaired the game through community-built patches.

The sequel looks to have secured investment from Microsoft, since it will launch exclusively on console for Xbox Series X, Microsoft's next-gen gaming platform.

Check back soon for further details, but for now, check out the trailer above.
