It’s been a very long road for the much anticipated Prey 2. After showing off a demo of the game at E3 2011 and completely wowing the fans, the game was originally slated for a 2012 release. Due to development issues and other problems though, the game was moved back into a late 2013 release date and since that update we haven’t heard anything new. If you missed the update, this is Bethesda’s official response to the debunked cancellation rumor.
“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.”
After checking Bethesda’s website today, you will notice that Prey 2 is missing from the page, but there’s no need to worry. IGN contacted Bethesda today and received a response that sounded pretty reassuring.
“Since we had already announced it wasn’t coming out this year and we don’t have anything new to say on the game at this time, we simply didn’t think it’d be appropriate to include it on the new site launch,” a Bethesda spokesperson told IGN. “We chose instead to focus on the upcoming titles we are talking about.”
Hopefully all those titles around the internet didn’t freak you out too much, cause it sure did when I first saw them. The game’s development process is still in question though, so we’ll just have to wait and see what becomes of Prey 2. Hopefully by the time of the Spike VGA’s this year, with Doom 3 BFG and Dishonored out the door, we’ll get some new details.
