S.T.A.L.K.E.R studio GSC Game World has become a certified Xbox 360 developer.
The move allows the company to create titles for multiple platforms, after the successful release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl on PC earlier this year.
"Obtaining such a status for an independent developer based in ex-USSR means a lot — it took us over two years to get," commented Sergiy Grygorovych, CEO of GSC Game World.
"Our old ambition to create multiplatform projects has become a reality."
"Creating games for PC, we achieved practically everything, and now are prepared to garner the top spots in sales charts and gamers' recognition in the world of console games too," he added.
