Bethesda’s vice president of PR and marketing Pete Hines is displeased with the current status of Prey 2, which would explain why the first-person action shooter hasn’t seen the light of day. Rumors surrounding the development indicate the project was put on halt in 2011.
In an interview with IGN, Hines said, “We appreciate that folks are displeased that we haven’t had any update or any info on Prey 2, but whatever your displeasure is, you can’t even be remotely as unhappy about it as us.” Hines’ statement could be construed as good news—unless of course you’ve marked your calendar and have been
patiently waiting for an official release date. If Prey 2 isn’t meeting whatever standards Bethesda has set in place, an early release could be disastrous.
However, considering the complications developer Human Head is having with Prey 2, the project might get scrapped altogether. Hines told IGN “You don’t just keep throwing money at something or going down a path that you’re not happy about.” He later added, “You have to make tough choices. Again, when we have more info on it, we’ll be happy to talk about it. That’s what I can say for now.”
Prey 2 is still listed for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Obviously a release date hasn’t been announced. We’ll keep you updated with more information as it trickles in.
