Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath Coming to Switch

Published

Oddworld

Oddworld Inhabitants has officially announced that 2005’s Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is being ported to the Switch.

While details on the port are slim, the previous re-releases that brought the game to the PlayStation 3 in 2011 featured remastered dialogue and bonus material, so hopefully those add-ons will also be included in the Switch version. A release date has not yet been announced.

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is considered as a sidestory in the series, which was originally intended to comprise five games, though only two mainline entries have been released to date. The title casts players as a bounty hunter called Stranger in a Wild West-inspired setting. Unlike the mainline entries the saga, the project adopts an adventure-shooter gameplay archetype.

Meanwhile, Oddworld Inhabitants is currently working on the next game in the series, subtitled Soulstorm. That project, similar to New ‘n’ Tasty before it, is set to be a complete remake of a previous title—in this case 1998’s Abe’s Exoddus, but featuring entirely new areas and mechanics. That title is scheduled to be release at some point next year.

Stalker 2 is Not A Revived Version of the Cancelled 2012 Project

Stalker 2

Stalker 2 has been confirmed as an entirely new project that has no basis on the cancelled 2012 sequel.

Roughly a decade ago, fans were excited when Stalker 2 was announced. Unfortunately, in 2012, Ukrainian developers GSC Games World was shut down and all progress on the sequel was put on hold.

All went quiet until 2014 where the company resurfaced and announced that development on a version of Stalker 2 was underway. Despite a developer build for the original Stalker 2 making its way onto the web, GSC Games World chose to start from scratch and create an entirely new AAA experience for the series.

GSC Games World has so far not stated why the decision was made to start from the beginning, aside from the assurance that the new game is currently in development and will hopefully hit stores in 2021.
