Prey 2 has been officially cancelled, Bethesda confirms

At PAX Australia, Bethesda Softworks’ vice president, Pete Hines, confirmed that Prey 2 has been officially cancelled.

Hines stated the following regarding Prey 2's cancellation:

“It was game we believed in, but we never felt that it got to where it needed to be – we never saw a path to success if we finished it. It wasn’t up to our quality standard, and we decided to cancel it. It’s no longer in development. That wasn’t an easy decision, but it’s one that won’t surprise many folks given that we hadn’t been talking about it. Human Head Studios is no longer working on it. It’s a franchise we still believe we can do something with — we just need to see what that something is.”

Haha, GIF made me lol hard. In all honesty though, I'm pretty bummed. I was a big fan of the first one...and man, that E3 2011 trailer was impressive.

NukaCola1384d ago

Sucks. The original E3 demo was insane. It was like a mix of Metroid, Mirror's Edge and Mass Effect all rolled into one. Absolutely one of the coolest ideas. Many great ideas never come to light though. Hopefully the developers still make games in the future or are working on something else.

Yeah but it wasnt Prey was it.....just a brand new IP using it's name

Only Prey sequel I want to play is a one with Tommy continuing right where the last game took off. Not playing some generic looking space marine

NCAzrael1384d ago

Then it's a shame they didn't just rename it and continue with development. The first Prey felt very gimmicky and lost my attention pretty quickly. The concept for Prey 2 sounded great, and I'm sad they canceled it.

MrSwankSinatra1384d ago

Dude you never even played the game to know whether the character was generic or not.

-Foxtrot1384d ago

Oh please...look at the bloody guy

Probably has a shaven head underneath that hat...there was no need for Tommy to be replaced

D-riders1384d ago

yeah three years ago it looked good

troylazlow1384d ago

about time they called this one dead. it had nothing to do with the original, I don't know why it considered a sequel.

did not see this happening, sucks. i remember owning the original years ago when it was new, totally tripped on it. ....now i'll never know what happens next :(

DesertFoxJr1384d ago

Exactly, 2006. The good old days.

Axonometri1384d ago

Seriously, Ive seen many gamers say this same thing of this time period and I have to agree. Not that there are no good games now, but there was a magic in the air in the 2006/07 timeline that has been lost. If we could just get that same vibe with today's tech.

1. We have less AAA releases, since a lot of the effort is on F2P and mobile.
2. They realized marketing >>> quality.
3. Innovation? Pfft!
4. We are older and much more used to gaming.
5. The treatment companies dispense to gamers (and we do deserve it as ultra stupid consumers) put a cloud of negativity surrounding a lot of games and gaming in general.
6. Games are not complete anymore.
7. Lies, lies and lies.
8. Overhyping, which is actually a face of point 2.
9. Half the great games come through the same companies/conglomerates.
10. Japan development is down. They are the masters of creativity.

And... 11. Devs became more stupid? Between the terrible RNG on Destiny, the much worse engine of any subsequent Call of Duty when compared to... MW2, Fifa being MUCH worse every two years, inFAMOUS SS being the most insipid game I've played this year... Yeah, I really think some extreme idiocy possessed developers. They are doing so many things so worse than they used to do, it is really absurd.

Some things are so badly done that it is really hard to explain. (Examples above)

Oh, and also 12. Obsession with 'balance' and underpowering the player.

IMO, we are too lenient about this.

Business men took over. Developers are the minority now.

WeAreLegion1384d ago

I assumed it had been years ago. :/ I hope we see the series again some day.

It was an Alien Bounty Hunter game...how could you cancel it?!
