Prey 2 Delayed, Not Canceled, as Developer's Status Called Into Question
It's unclear if Human Head Studios is still in charge of developing the sequel.

After keeping Prey fans in suspense for the past two months, publisher Bethesda has finally confirmed Prey 2 remains in development. It has, however, been delayed out of 2012 according to a surprisingly straightforward statement released earlier today.

"Development of Prey 2 has not been canceled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned," the statement read in part. "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." That's a far cry from the industry standard way of handling a situation like this, where we'd normally hear about nothing but an intense desire to ensure the game in question turns out as good as possible. That is what's hinted at here, but it's a far more pessimistic assessment of the progress that has been made than we're used to seeing publicly.

It is good news to hear the game hasn't been canceled, especially considering the consensus was that the game was looking good. Back in February, talks on Prey 2 scheduled for this year's Game Developers Conference were scratched at the behest of Bethesda. It was unclear why this had been done, whether it be because the talks conflicted with the PR roadmap or because the status of the game had changed. The latter was assumed by many to be the case when Bethesda declined to comment on rumors the game had been canceled. While it's not always true, outright declining to offer a comment is in many cases the step taken before an official announcement is made -- just look at the way THQ dealt with talk of a Darksiders II delay shortly before making news of one official.
