Over the last few weeks rumors have been circulating that the highly-anticipated shooter Prey 2 had been cancelled by Bethesda. Today, Bethesda has officially responded to the claims, and thankfully the game is only being delayed to 2013; as of now.
In an email sent out to press they had this to say:
[quote]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. [/quote]
It’s a relief that the title hasn’t been cancelled, especially after seeing it in action at last year’s E3. It does appear that there is some development trouble, though most of it is speculation at this point.
