RUMOR: Arkane Studios Now Working On Prey 2

Prey 2 is no longer being developed by Human Head and has been moved to Arkane Studios, who developed the very popular Dishonored, according to a new report.

A source familiar with the matter has told Kotaku that Human Head have been left in Limbo for the past year, since Bethesda halted work on the game, and were only just recently told that they were off development duties. Another source added that Obsidian, developers of Fallout: New Vegas, has worked on the project for a few months and that the publisher also asked U.K. studio Rebellion to help out, but it refused.

The source claims that Bethesda has been trying to convince Arkane to take over development for months and last week it finally forced the developer’s hand. Apparently Arkane will now scrap all of Human Head’s work and build the game from scratch with a targeted release date of 2016.

Several members of the Arkane team are upset about being forced to work on the game, according to the source, but the companies’ higher-ups have told them to treat the game like a new System Shock and not as Prey 2.

Of course none of this information has been confirmed in any way and is all just rumor for now, so treat it as such.
