Bethesda is Lying about Prey 2: Ex-Human Head Developer

Ex-Human Head developer Jason L Blair has alleged that Bethesda is lying about Prey 2.

Jason alleged that recent rumor of Arkane Studio getting the development rights of Prey 2 has given new life to a lot of old lies.

The story is too old to be commented.

-"Prey 2 was a full game. And a crazy fun one. The team was small but you wouldn't have known it."
-"I was heartbroken when Prey 2 went into limbo. Human Head deserved to have that game released. Frankly, they needed it."
-"What happened to Prey 2, from where I sat, was political. And petty. And potentially litigable. Human Head had a great game."

So HumanHead had a complete and finish version of Prey 2 but Bethesda didn't like it so put the project on hold and eventually ended up handing the project Arkane Studios, is what I'm guessing what happen.

You can't believe how much bad is Bethesda ...

That really sucks. The gameplay footage looked very interesting and was really looking forward to it. I just recently played through the original PREY on my PC using Sikkmod. Damn shame...very disappointed in Bethesda.

If that's true then I can understand why some people at Arkane apparently aren't keen on working on it. They probably feel bad about taking a taking that someone else has put so much effort into and completed only to have it given to another studio.

I even signed the petition for this game. Bethesda should at least release another trailer for E3. It would be a shame seeing great potential go to waste. we need more cyberpunk games, not less.

zeal0us2026d ago

Prey and Prey 2 aren't cyberpunk games. Cyberpunk game would be Deus Ex: Human Revolution, ShadowRun(original not remake), Syndicate and System Shock for example.

Even though its story/background doesnt technically make it a cyberpunk game, it definitely has the feel for it. its a dark city filled with neon lights, theres high tech stuff, and the city is full of crime (thats why hes a bounty hunter). aside from the aliens, this is a cyberpunk game. have you seen the gameplay? Prey 2 is NOT Prey 1.

I have to agree with elhebbo16... From what I have seen Prey 2 looks like Blade Runner. Hence the cyberpunk connection.

Human Analog2026d ago

Three "people" disagree that it looks like blade runner?!?.... I guess they have never seen that movie. THAT has got to be the only reason..... Well unless they are just being trolls.

Really looking forward prey 2, hope it doesn't get canned...

I really liked the first one, although it's been a long time since I've played it. However, the CG trailer they showed didn't have the same feel at all. Instead of this horrifying human abduction sphere city with spirit walking storyline aspects, we get a vibrant nightlife city with some average joe bounty hunter.

I don't know, it just seemed to reflect what the industry does with a lot of more unique franchises (not saying Prey was SUPER unique, but it had its many moments). Strip them of their "soul" and make them appeal to a mass, generic audience.

I know it's a lot to base off of one CG trailer, but the point of a trailer is to give off a feel for the game, and it was way off from what the first game felt like. It seemed like Prey in name only, which is sad.

I dunno man, tell me when was the last time we had an open world alien night city?

Dr Pepper2026d ago

I'm not saying it wouldn't have been a good game or cool idea, just not deserving of the name Prey based on what they showed.

You could say "we never get open world alien cities", but if you look at the two games, and tell me that the "alien hunter badass in a nightclub-like city" is more unique than "culturally conflicted native american who splits his time spirit walking and being constantly hunted on an inverted harvesting sphere" then I would probably assume you thought Splinter Cell Conviction was the best Splinter Cell, or Hitman Absolution was the best Hitman, or that Ghost Recon Future Soldier was the best Ghost Recon.

My point is those games were forgettable, average experiences because they partially, or fully, abandon what made the original games so fantastic.

Bethesda lying NO. They don't do that ever.
