Rumor Patrol: Prey 2 Cancelled?
Multiple sources around the web are reporting that development of Human Head’s sequel to Prey may have been permanently halted by publisher Bethesda.
Some worry was cast a few weeks back when several conferences set to demonstrate Prey 2 at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) were cancelled prior to the event.
GameSpot has reported that it has reached out to Bethesda for comment, and was told that “the company had no comment on the report.”
This news comes in light of poor sales for many Bethesda games last year including Hunted: The Demon’s Forge and RAGE.
Though I thought the game’s story looked a little corny, I was intrigued by the gameplay of Prey 2. As a fan of Prey, I had high hopes that its one could reach mass market appeal that the original lacked. Now it looks like we may have to live out our dreams of being a space bounty hunter through Boba Fett. Again.
