It's never a good sign when an extended period of time passes with nothing in the way of updates or new info.

If you check the Dutch site PSFocus – and you've got a translator – you'll see that several sources are saying publisher Bethesda Softworks has canceled the anticipated Prey sequel.

It has been in development at Human Head since last year but since then, we've heard next to nothing. Prey 2 was supposed to boast a new main character and even some drastic gameplay alterations; specifically, the familiar portals from the first game would disappear and the game would feel more like a traditional shooter. The developers had also intended to ditch the idea of online multiplayer so they could focus on the single-player campaign. Maybe that was it…no shooter these days can release without a multiplayer option, even if single-player remains the focus.

But whatever the reason, it seems we may never see Prey 2 . Well, it's not like there's a severe FPS shortage in gaming.

Damnit!

Let someone like Crytek handle it after they finish Homefront 2.

And keep it like the 1st Prey & STOP trying to change Prey into something else that it isn't.

Let's hope not, that game actually looked like something a bit different. High hopes for Doom 4 and Dishonored.

I've been waiting for DOOM 4 as well. Just starting playing the series again from the very beginning a few weeks ago. Still very enjoyable after 19 years.

DOOM is one of the only games from that era i can play for 5 hours on end and every minute of that was spent with a massive smile on my face!
hell, very few current games can do that!
oh how i wish some developers would go back to the old level design…….

A game where you are like Bobba Fett in the world of Bladerunner, gets its plug pulled… WHY!?!?!?
