Bethesda reportedly cancels Prey 2

Bethesda is rumoured to have pulled the plug on Human Head-developed sci-fi shooter Prey 2.

The firm hasn’t spoken publicly about the game for some time, but Dutch site PS Focus claims Bethesda will confirm next week that it has dropped plans to publish the sequel, which was announced in March 2008, two years after the launch of the well-received original.

Last month Brian Karis, lead graphics programmer at Human Head, said he’d been left “pretty devastated” after Bethesda parent company ZeniMax Media forced the studio to pull a series of planned Prey 2 talks at GDC.

Approached for comment, a Bethesda spokesperson told Gamasutra that the company isn’t saying anything on the matter at this time: "Thanks for reaching out but we aren't commenting on the story," they said.
