Bethesda Denies Involvement With Prey 2 Countdown Website

By   /   Feb 23, 2013

You might recall that a strange countdown website appeared a few weeks ago which hinted that Prey 2 might be on the horizon. The site had strange text on it and a phrase in the source code said ‘Tommy needs your help’.

Well it seems that the site has been updated, but not by Bethesda. In fact, Bethesda is denying all involvement with the website or the countdown. The updated “Alien Noire” countdown site now has a new hidden message in the source code which reads “Tommy needs help with a stranded human who wants to go home.”

The alien text on the site can be decoded by copy-pasting it into notepad. Currently it reads as follows:

553374 seconds
9222 minutes
153 hours
6 days

It’s a bit early to get ahead of myself but I have a sneaking suspicion that the Prey 2 countdown website is actually an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) similar to the ilovebees ARG that was set up prior to the release of Halo 2 and the Year Zero ARG set up by Nine Inch Nails
