there are two reasons
1)one of the ukranian law enforcement structure was interested in taking control over GSC (translation - they wanted to capture the company and have their money/control their direction). - edit5: this isn't true.
2)Grigorovich didn't like how STALKER 2 development was going
all salaries will be payed until february 2012. Na'vi (guys who won DOTA 2 tournament) are moving into their offices.
it was fun while it lasted.
Didn't happen. They're still working on it.
The denial tweet above has been deleted.
The company's director says it's true. Gah, don't think it's fake. :(
Goddammit. What's going on?
“Dear Stalkers: We will not be releasing any official news until around mid January. However there is cause for hope! Good hunting!”

SECOND UPDATE: The denial tweet has now been deleted. Hmm. Still trying to get confirmation on this, but it’s looking like GSC is down. GSC’s Dmitri Bourkovski has just tweeted “Not PR. GSC closed.”
FIRST UPDATE: GSC deny the report on their twitter here. We’ve contacted them for a comment.
ORIGINAL: According to this report from Ukrainian news site UkraNews, GSC has been shut down by owner Sergei Grigorovich. The closure was apparently announced to the workforce earlier today. The autotranslation is messy, so if anyone can explain the sixth paragraph – which tries to speculate on what was going on – accurately, that would be great.
