S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is one of the best games ever made, but it is also riddled with several bugs and technical problems. GSC has released several patches for the game, but they came out slowly and didn't solve most known problems. Furthermore, saved games from one S.T.A.L.K.E.R. version are incompatible with any other.

"Big publishers have certain rules and strict requirements which we have to obey as developer", said GSC's senior PR manager Oleg Yavorsky. "The new patch has been in test for quite some time and we're sending regular updates to THQ. So players should be able to get their hands on the next patch very soon."
