Raider65 - Thanks so much for posting that vid!
I had all but given up hope for this game. Glad to see it is still alive.
However, further digging reveals that it's no longer attached to 1C anymore which is why it's so quiet here.

Obviously Google translate isn't the greatest but what I think I read is that 1C didn't want to continue to finance it, but retained the ownership of the title. Best Way therefore have to give it a new title, Project5 as the working title, and it's now a fallout-inspired game in a stalker-esque enviornment.
The video seems promising although it is almost a year old and the latest thing I can find is a comment from some sort of social media thing stating (again translated):
"It was presented and the company Bestway, which moved to our city. Showed crude build of Project 5, which now is, as I understand, paused - looking for an investor."

So...It's died, revived, died again...come back without the 1C tag and now in limbo...
Let's hope someone picks it up!

Also just briefly on the new stalker possiblity - obviously that link was almost 8 months ago but in case you've not yet heard, GSC are back but no word of another stalker. They are working on Cossacks 3 which I'm told by people was a game that had/has almost as big of a following as stalker so maybe they thought it'd be a good way to re-enter the field...Again, let's just hope they also give us something stalker-ish to play!

roptor - obviously as I've said 1C are no longer involved, but I do agree that they could have worked it out. I don't know what 1C work on these days, I think publishing games is cheaper than funding development so that might be it?

Personally I like to see 1C associated with a game from an Eastern European dev because I know they will at least attempt to do a good job with translating and promotion of the title.

Anyway enough rambling from me.
Shame to see what was once a busy forum full of new and upcoming games now just a place housing a few flagship titles and some unheard of or cancelled games...
