Prey was one of the more under-appreciated games of the generation, and we had hoped we'd see a sequel by now.

Unfortunately, after being announced in 2011, Prey 2 has apparently endured a rocky road. It was delayed in 2012 due to quality issues and then developer Human Head said the project was on hold.

But according to inside sources speaking to Kotaku , the game is no longer at Human Head, as development has shifted to Arkane Studios, the team that brought you the award-winning Dishonored . It also seems that anything Human Head did has been ditched and Arkane is basically starting over, which is why there's a tentative release date of 2016. To add to the drama, it seems some members of Arkane Austin aren't too happy about this, but some are treating it like a new System Shock . Interesting, no?

Prey utilized several really good ideas and Arkane has proven themselves with Dishonored . And if they're thinking of it as another System Shock , well…color us intrigued.

Sounds like Human Head sucks. I was hoping for another Dishonored, that's probably why some are upset. But if they give it their all this could be good. I never played System Shock but I heard good things.
