Have You Played... Prey 2?

You'll not kill again when you meet Killian

Featured post

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.

No, no one has. Prey 2 [official site] was cancelled long before it was finished and reborn as Arkane’s more simply titled Prey.

The new Prey is by all accounts a good or great game, but I can’t help but be disappointed I’ll never have the opportunity to play Human Head’s take. It was nothing to do with the new Prey and only tangentially related to the original. It cast you as the terribly name Killian Samuels, an American man who becomes a bounty hunter in an alien open world. You had hover boots, could do parkour, and while following a scripted storyline would spend time pursuing sweater-wearing aliens around grim future cities on a tidally locked planet.

That sounds pretty amazing to me, though I admit that what I saw of the game at a press event (E3? I think it was E3) at the time looked both slightly janky and like the only existing piece of the game. It was clearly far from finished and, therefore, who knows what the end product would have been like. But it was interesting enough that I wanted to find out and I still like the idea of an open world cyberpunk bounty hunting game.
