Prey 2
Prey 2's Matt Bisenius Talks New Beginnings, Prey 1 Tie-Ins and Sandbox Gameplay

The original Prey was a wonderfully unique game that tried something new in a genre that was generally getting stale. Instead of build on that though, Human Head Studios, the original Prey developer, has seemingly gone back to the drawing board to try something new... again.

At Bethesda's BFG Showcase last week, we caught up with Matt Bisenius, an Associate Producer on Prey 2 to ask him whether this could actually be deemed a sequel, what ties it had to the original, player choice and pretty much everything else we could ask.

Apparently, Prey 2 is "definitely" a sequel. Delve in and see what Bisenius had to say for himself.

Prey 2 is scheduled for a 2012 release.

Nice to hear Tommy will be in the game to some degree, is it just me or would they be nuts not to do co-op in this game, one person as the bounty hunter, the other as tommy.

i loved prey because it touched on native american themes that have never been done in games. sucks that they go with some run of the mill shooter that sounds more like bonderlands/rage then prey.

Is it just me or is anyone else really disappointed with this interview? It seems like they cut all the features that separated prey from a generic sandbox shooter :/

@#9 Exactly my thoughts. Just because you slap Tommy doesn't mean it should be named Prey2 LOL. It's like putting Marcus in Halo and calling it next gears.... Still, treated as a brand new IP it does sound interesting:-)

Interesting, while I liked the portal gameplay, an open world take on the universe will be looked forward to

i was interested in this entry even if they made comparissons to every popular franchise out there. The fact they're not using id tech 5 worries me about how dated itll look compared to their other games.I dont think their excuse was good enough as to why the didnt but we'll see how it turns out. Hopefully well as it looks like its an interestin series.

They take away the portals, the Gravity walk and the spirit walk? And call it a sequel? Maybe the next bioshock game should just be a guy fighting nazis with a slingshot or the next gears shouldn't have a cover button. Why change the things that made the game good? I was looking forward to This game for ages but u doubt i'l get it on release now.
