Prey 2 was a game numerous fans were looking forward to and the news of it being canceled by Bethesda has left them disappointed.
Bethesda said that it wasn’t easy to cancel the game, but they felt the game isn’t where it’s required to be. Prey 2 wasn’t according to their quality standards, so they had to cancel it.
However, Tim Gerritsen, Human Head Business Development Director commented on the game’s cancellation and stated that although they are disappointed to not being able to deliver their vision of the game, but they are proud of the work they did on Prey 2.
We can confirm that Human Head Studios has not been involved with Prey 2 for some time. While we are disappointed that we won’t be able to deliver our vision of the game, we remain proud of our work on the franchise, which we feel speaks for itself, including the award-winning presentation of the game at E3 2011.
He further stated:
We enjoyed working with the many talented people at Bethesda, and we wish them all the best of luck with any future plans they may have for the franchise.
Still, all hopes for a new Prey game aren’t lost as Bethesda Vice President Pete Hines have previously stated that the company still believes in this franchise and believes they can still do something with it; it’s just a matter of time before they figure out what it is.
