Hundreds of popular online publications spread the news that the official announcement of the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 took place, while for lack of any details, they began to publish their thoughts and the results of analytical work.
For example, many news sites mentioned the following:
"According to Whois, the website was registered in the name of Sergey Grigorovich June 5, 2014 the address of registration corresponds to Cyprus, said the phone – "Kyivstar", and contact email – the website of the company GSC Game World. Registration was extended for another 24 months on June 6, 2017 And the site was updated a few hours ago-may 15, 2018." - stopgame.ru
In fact, the authors of such statements did not even bother to use the popular service of restoring copies of sites made years earlier. Thanks to Wayback Machine, you can see for yourself that is actually the address of the site STALKER2.COM in the period from 2014 to end 2016 belonged to the service of kiberskvotterov "HugeDomains" who bought the domains, representing any value (consonance, short, history, etc.) and resold them. Thus, the price of the said domain at the end of 2016 was set at the level of $ 2,095.
There is no doubt that Sergey Grigorovich bought the domain from the service for the needs of the project as soon as they started developing the game. Anyone could elementary trace the history of domain registrations stalker2.com to at the end of 2016 will guess that S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is in development.
The erroneous judgment that the domain belongs to Sergey Grigorovich since 2014 arose from the fact that the service for the sale of domains completely transfers the ownership of the domain to a new person, while simply changing the contact details to new ones. That is why according to the WHOIS data of THE tools in the domain history it is indicated that the domain is registered in 2014 and has a contact person of Sergey Grigorovich. Yes, it has such contact person, but it is not registered by him.
Date of registration of the domain has been set to zero would only be the case if the service has not renewed the domain name in the expiry of registration, and Sergei Grigorovich would have just bought a free domain, but it happened anyway.
Now you can roughly assume that the development of the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was begun in late 2016, or at least it was already known about its development in advance.
