Prey 2 Is Not Cancelled, Just Delayed

Good news, everyone! Prey 2 is still very much alive, confirms Bethesda, after a worrying media blackout and rumours suggested that Human Head's ambitious bounty hunting shooter had been canned. However, it won't release this side of 2013.

“Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned," quoth Bethesda in a recent statement. "The delay is due to the fact that game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year, and the game does not currently meet our quality standards. Prey 2 has shown great promise and we regret disappointing our fans."

“We have made a substantial investment in game development to deliver the experience fans want. We are determined only to release the AAA game that fans rightfully expect, and are unwilling to compromise our quality standards to meet a release schedule.”

Considering that Prey 2 blew us away at E3 and Gamescom 2011, we're willing to wait.

This has made my day.

Me too. Was pleasantly impressed by the first, and am excited by the proposed direction of the sequel we saw at E3 last year. Am glad this is still on track, just a little waylaid.

If the development schedule stays true to the original I look forward to playing this in 2022.
