Some days, you just see the most surprising press releases.
We knew Bethesda Softworks parent company ZeniMax media snapped up the Prey license a couple years back, but as we never heard anything about a sequel, we figured…well, we never would. So untrue. Today, Bethesda has announced Prey 2 , the long-awaited follow-up to the 2006 shooter; the sequel is scheduled to release in 2012 and – unlike the original – be available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Prey never came to the PS3 back when Sony's machine was in its infancy stages. Developer Human Head Studios is back in the saddle for Prey 2 and they're utilizing the "cutting-edge it tech engine from id Software." Said Chris Rhinehart, team boss:
"We are thrilled to be working with Bethesda on Prey 2. Prey 2 will provide gamers the opportunity to explore a new facet of the Prey universe, one that offers fast-paced action in an open, alien world. We're excited to show gamers the title we have been working on and hope they will be as excited by this title as we are."

The first took quite some time to arrive, if we remember correctly, and the expectations were very high.
It's an FPS with a twist, and that's enough to interest us.
