GSC Game World "hopeful" of finishing game

STALKER developer GSC Game World has admitted it needs more funding to complete the sequel to the highly praised shooter.

Reports had suggested the company was struggling and likely to close down before Christmas, but yesterday the Kiev-based developer said via Facebook that the project was still in development.

However, according to a report by Edge, the company is seeking funding to finish the game, stating: "We are hopeful things turn out well eventually. The team really wants to see STALKER continue."

Just get on Kickstarter, I'm sure once gaming sites hear about it, the money will come rolling in.

^I was about to post this. Kickstarter seems to be the best choice for funding. Both a retail and digital version would be excellent (yeah, it'll cost a mint, but hey - the money's out there, it seems) and I'm sure the dev team can come up with soem awesome bonuses for high contributors...

It really depends on what they want to do much money they need. Not shure if there are crowdfunding website with runs for millions of dollars. Ah, and Kickstarter is limited to US citizens.
