Prey 2 NOT Cancelled – Just Delayed

No solid release date, will skip 2012…

Bethesda have responded to the rumours circulating that Prey 2 has been cancelled, here it is:

Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned. The delay is due to the fact that game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year, and the game does not currently meet our quality standards. Prey 2 has shown great promise and we regret disappointing our fans. We have made a substantial investment in game development to deliver the experience fans want. We are determined only to release the AAA game that fans rightfully expect, and are unwilling to compromise our quality standards to meet a release schedule.

So it seems that Prey 2 still lives…for now. What we have to remember is how long the original Prey was in development, by my account that was from 1995-2006, so I wouldn’t panic right now! It’s got a long way to go before becoming the new Duke Nukem Forever….
