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.”
