Bethesda: Prey 2 Not Canceled, Just Delayed Beyond 2012

It's always good to have the official clarification.

About three weeks ago, various sources reported that Prey 2 may have been canceled. After all, we hadn't heard anything about the project for an extended period of time, and it did seem feasible.

But in an update today from Bethesda PR, we have the correction: The game hasn't been canceled; it is merely delayed. It won't hit the estimated 2012 release window as, according to the company statement, "the game does not currently meet our quality standards." They go on to say that Prey 2 still shows "great promise" and they've made a "substantial investment" in the project's development, so they won't release it until they're convinced it's ready. That's probably the best idea as the shooter competition these days is so out of control, you had best come with your A game.

Maybe we'll learn more about Prey 2 as the year progresses and hopefully, it will indeed be well worth playing when it finally hits store shelves.

Bethesda makes great RPGS, shooters IDK. I wouldn't hold my breath for prey 2. 1st one had a decent single player but it was easily forgettable. Id rather hear of skyrim dlc.

They may be both published by the same parent company but skyrim and prey 2 are being created by two different studios.

so why couldent they say this in the first place!?
why when these rumours first surfaced why couldent they say this instead of we dont comment on rumour and speculation?
50 bucks says they have just put a new developer on it and they said that back then because the deal was not complete yet!

im sorry, but something about this stinks BIG TIME!
“the delay is due to the fact that game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year”
well according to recent sources claims IT HAS NOT PROGRESSED AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ex developers were claiming today that they stopped development in november because they were not happy with zenimaxs terms and some even left the studio hoping zenimax would get the idea and give into them.
but march this year that backfired and allot of the studio got laid off.
sad, i had such high hopes for this game!
now im about as excited for it as i am watching paint dry!
sigh, way to kill what was looking like such a awesome game bugthesda!
