Bethesda has issued a statement, just emailed over to us, about the rumours of a Prey 2 cancellation. The good news is that it is still very much in development. Unfortunately, there’s bad news too: it won’t be released in 2012 as previously planned.
Here’s the full statement:


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.

If it doesn't meet Bethesda's quality standards heaven help us.  Their standards aren't exactly high to begin with!

I really hope it isn't canceled but I'll wait until a major site publishes this email. Seems odd that such a minor site is first to post this news since it was apparently emailed to everyone. Also it seems odd that they say that the quality isn't up to their standards, even if it is set to release next year that is still a worrying statement. I don't know why they wouldn't just leave that out. I don't know why the site would make this up, but perhaps the email itself is fake.

Really want this game to come out though.

Oh awesome then. :) Still the "not up to our quality standards" line is odd to me, but it's probably just poorly worded and they don't actually mean "the game isn't good" which is how I took it. The video walkthrough from awhile back was amazing and the world just looks fantastic. Easily one of my most anticipated games.

Was there that much love for Prey 1? Seemed pretty mediocre to me.

It's not about Prey 1 at all. It's the footage of Prey 2  that got everyone excited.

On the Bethesda blog now http://www.bethblog..../prey-2-update/

This Comment made me lol

"So…I assume they were about to cancel it and void contract with Human Head, but then the news leaked, Bethesda saw the reaction of public (DO NOT F***ING CANCEL IT!) and thus decided to not cancel it, but postpone it. And I would not be surprised if Bethesda took it away from Human Head and gave it to some other studio, perhaps more capable to deliver milestones.
Still, good news, the concept and trailers are just fantastic. Hopefully it still ends up being great."

They'll think otherwise when it releases and they sell 100,000 copies of a game in development for four years. Unless it releases on PC and sells another hundre grand because of a Steam sale.

With a decent amount of advertising it could be successful.  It definitely looks cool enough to woo casual gamers.

I thought from a technical standpoint Prey was pretty solid, did they lose a good portion of the original team or something? I haven't seen the Prey 2 previews so maybe Prey 2 is just way too ambitious in scope compared to the first.

Rumor: Human Head hasn't worked on Prey 2 since November due to contractual dispute with Zenimax.
There are no such thing as rights, only privileges granted by tyrants. It does not matter what guise these tyrants take -- Gods, Kings, Emperors, Dictators, Presidents, Congresses, Parliaments, Judges, and Juries -- the privileges called rights are doled out and rescinded at the whim of their interpretation of Justice and its unruly stepchild, Law.

This was the first promising project outside of Fallout and Elder Scrolls for Bethesda publishing.  No way this project is successful if HH is removed from it.  Might as well scrap it.

Well shit. I really hope they resolve their issues or that ate at the game was close enough to completion that another team can finish it while retaining most of the original creative vision. It looks like bethesda owns the Prey ip, I was hoping human head did, but ya looks like they can do what they want with it. They have had a lot of lukewarm games recently besides their main FO/oblivion games, you'd think they'd want another high quality game to keep their rep as a publisher up.

But after the screwing over Oblivion for being 1 point lower on metacritic thing I don't have much faith that they budged much on terms.
