*Thinks of the somewhat grim yet unlikely sounding prospect of this story being true*

Err, No, thanks.

I bought and thoroughly enjoyed all of the Stalker games and sincerely doubt that a Western developer could adequately capture the mood and atmosphere portrayed in those games. These games feature a uniquely Eastern European post-apocalyptic ambience that simply goes in a different direction to more traditional post-apocalyptic games. F03 is poles apart in tone.

I'm also not convinced that just because of a generalised similarity based upon perspective and gameplay style (first person, free-roaming, open world) that Bethesda would necessarily be suited to this series for the obvious reasons I've mentioned.
Let franchises die an honourable death and the ashes for the ideas which remain, stay in the lap of the original developers.
Diddledy high,
Diddledy low,
Come brave blood sheep,
You've a goodly way to go.
