Choice-Driven Sci-Fi Horror Game Tether Put on Indefinite Hiatus

Tether

One of the more promising indie projects to be announced in recent times, Freesphere Entertainment’s high concept horror title Tether, has been put on hold as a result of financial issues.

The game’s director, Mark Gregory, made the announcement via Twitter over the weekend, writing that the title is “on ice for the foreseeable future.” The reason behind the decision is that the team, to date, has been unfunded, and recent negotiations with outside investors fell through.

Tether was announced in late 2016 as a horror game set on a spaceship bound for Mars, but underwent a redesign in the middle of 2017. The title was intended to be heavily choice-driven, giving players the ability to freeze and rewind time, as well as including hacking, stealth, and action elements.

Gregory does not seem to have ruled out the possibility of revisiting Tether if the opportunity arises, but, for the present, he intends to focus on smaller projects that will allow him to be more hands-on in the production process.

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.
