GSCGW created the X-Ray Engine used in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series.
On December 9, 2011, GSC was dissolved. Two new studios were formed by employees who worked on S.T.A.L.K.E.R.Vostok Games and 4A Games (this one long before 2011).
In 2013 a controversial new company was formed, called West Games (formerly Union Studio), with people who claimed to be former members or leading specialists of the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series. However, GSC Game World later revealed that the only STALKER project West Games were working on was a canceled Flash game.
In December 2014, GSC reopened officially. They also announced a new game to be in development.
In May 2015, GSC announced Cossacks 3 which will be a remake of their real-time strategy classic.
In November 2007, GSC acquired Xbox 360 developer rights. In September 2009 GSC announced that it would port S.T.A.L.K.E.R. to consoles (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3). However, due to a lack of manpower, they planned to begin with the release of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 which was later stuck in development hell.
