Rumour: Prey 2 Shelved By Bethesda
Written Friday, March 23, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Rumours abound that Bethesda may have cancelled Human Head's Prey 2, the FPS sequel that we last saw at both Gamescom and Bethesda's BFG Showcase in 2011. On each occasion, Prey 2 was looking in fine shape, so a potential cancellation could come as something of a shock.
According to an inside source in a report on Dutch site PS Focus (posted on NeoGAF), intel has been dug up claiming that a Prey 2 presentation scheduled for GDC earlier this month was pulled, as the game had reportedly been shelved by Bethesda. If true, an official announcement is expected next week.
"Yes, Zenimax forced us to pull all Prey 2 related talks from GDC. I'm pretty devastated by the news. This was to be my first conf talk," Human Head's Lead Programmer, Brian Karis tweeted prior to GDC. Bethesda has yet to comment on the rumours surrounding Prey 2.
