Pete Hines, vice president of Bethesda, has talked with the official magazine of Xbox about the reasons that led to the cancellation of Prey 2 before the saga was rescued to perform a restart by Arkane Studios.
I was heartbroken when Prey 2 was canceled, just like how I was when Fable Legends got cancelled.
A handful AAA of games are getting canx'd over there at MS. What the heck?
You were heartbroken!! Me too but for another matter.... why the hell prey, the 1st game got released later on xbox but not on playstation 3? WTF?
The 1st was a great game but unfortunately i fumbled my fingers and a dodgey mouse to have to play it. Why why why wasn't it released on ps3 i dunno.
But yes, to your point i was really looking forward to the 2nd installment too. Such a shame.
I thought at first that they cancelled the Prey reboot, my head was about to explode
Me too. Wow close one
they SHOULD CANCELL IT.
Its not Prey, has ZERO to do with the original.
Looks great though!
I don't know if they should cancel it but you're right about it not being a Prey game.
From what I have saw, it's only a Prey game by name.
It may end up being a good game but I'm turned off by haphazard name slapping.
No way would I buy this game at release being disappointed in seeing it called Prey already.
Same here, I'm honestly looking forward to Prey. They had me at "good morning, Morgan"
Good night Morgan.
I wish they did. This game would've been wayyyy cooler.
good bait :)
I dont believe a word Peter Hines says, not one.
The video's I saw of Prey the original sequel were awesome, i think it was E3 2014, the developer was showing off the game.
I believe they cancelled Prey because we live in a WHITE SUPREMIST SOCIETY, and they dont want to elavate or celabrate the Native Indians in any way or fashion,.,...PLAIN AND SIMPLE.
Its just ol fashion RACISM from a Society that has been created by RACIST PEOPLE who think they re God.
Donald Trump then?
The only racist here is you towards white people, evidently.
Oh my god, your are the idiot of the day .... PLAIN AND SIMPLE
Any evidence? Or are you just making crazy ass speculations? Cause that is ridiculous. The main character wasn't Indian, as the first one had the main character as an Indian. And if you are trying to be politically correct, say "Native American" not Native Indian.
Go love in Africa then. There are still native tribes in South America. Go join them.
Where the hell did that come from?
Not to get too excited but Prey looks damn good!
Pete Hines is a blatant liar.. Prey 2 is complete and has been shelved... anybody who wants to know what really happened, here:
Thanks for posting this and trying to stop the lies that the Bethesda execs are trying to make up. Don't get me wrong Bethesda is one of my favorite developers, but I'm just not a fan of their excuses.
They get a free pass because Skyrim and FallOut.. Fanboys can't see past it. I would respect them alot more if they were just honest and say "We tried to buy them, they refused.. our relationship turned sour.. we couldnt work with each other anymore.. we moved on" How hard is that??
Thing is, Fallout 4 and the cancellation of Prey 2 is part of a downward slope for their business imo.
At the end of the day... Unless a Dev is trying to force their evil master plan... I dont play the devs... I play the games.
No free pass. Just many don't give a shit about this stuff.
Bethesda pulls some crap sometimes. How about Valve? I think they also pull a few boners as well.
@Active Messiah Very well said, but sadly no company can admit when they are in the wrong.
That honestly makes me more angry. Bethesda is just screwing up their business and Prey 2 is a loss for them. It looked great from what has been said or shown.
Tommy's story from prey 1 should have been continued, very disappointed that we never got to finish it out.
I really hate how because this game was cancelled Human Head has been forced to make cellphone games. Prey 2 was their biggest break into the video games market and I just wish they'd be given another shot, at those kind of games. From what I understand Human Head owns the ideas from that game, so I wish another company would help them bring it out as a new IP instead.
This easily is one of the biggest games I wanted that was canceled. If only Bethesda wasn't greedy and wanted to buy the company Human Head this game could have come out, but instead there is one less video game developer making console or PC games.
They should un-cancel it with this gen. I feel like the biggest limit were the last gen consoles.
I wonder how much they paid Pete to do this unbelievably timely interview on official Xbox magazine.
