bitComposer Entertainment AG has acquired the rights for future adaptations of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. brand from Boris Natanovich Strygatsky, according to a press release on the firm’s official site.

The company has acquired the rights only for games based on S.T.A.L.K.E.R., as all other rights remain with Boris Natanovich Strugatsky’s brothers, as the author passed away in November of this year.

“The acquisition of the S.T.AL.K.E.R. license serves as an important cornerstone for the further international orientation of bitComposer Entertainment AG,” says Stefan Weyl, member of the bitComposer Entertainment AG executive board.

“For us, this brand represents a bridge to an important segment of triple-A products and a milestone in the history of the company. We would like to express our gratitude to Boris Natanovich Strygatsky.”

“S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is a reputable brand with a long history of success. To date, the series has sold many millions of units worldwide,” says Wolfgang Duhr, member of the bitComposer Entertainment AG executive board. “Naturally, we’d like to tap into the success of this series, and we see a great deal of potential for the future.”

Further details will be released shortly.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat was published by bitComposer.
