Bethesda removes Prey 2 from its product line-up

Bad news for Prey 2 fans, as there is a high probability that Prey 2 won’t get released on this generation of consoles (and PCs). Back in March, we informed you about Prey 2’s rumored cancellation.

Prey 2 is cancelled… NOT; Coming in 2013

It took Bethesda a while but finally, they made an official statement about Prey 2’s development. According to Beth’s official blog, the game is still under development, however it won’t be released in 2012. The delay is said to be due to the fact that ‘game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year, and the game does not currently meet our quality standards‘. Fair enough, however this seems like an attempt of damage control and nothing more. Continue reading Prey 2 is cancelled… NOT; Coming in 2013
