Bethesda May Have Given Prey 2 The Axe
It's never a good sign when an extended period of time passes with nothing in the way of updates or new info.
If you check the Dutch site PSFocus - and you've got a translator - you'll see that several sources are saying publisher Bethesda Softworks has canceled the anticipated Prey sequel.
It has been in development at Human Head since last year but since then, we've heard next to nothing. Prey 2 was supposed to boast a new main character and even some drastic gameplay alterations; specifically, the familiar portals from the first game would disappear and the game would feel more like a traditional shooter. The developers had also intended to ditch the idea of online multiplayer so they could focus on the single-player campaign. Maybe that was it...no shooter these days can release without a multiplayer option, even if single-player remains the focus.
But whatever the reason, it seems we may never see Prey 2. Well, it's not like there's a severe FPS shortage in gaming.
