Prey’s creative director and founder of Arkane Studios, Raphael Colantonio, steps down

Raphael Colantonio, the founder and president of Arkane Studios and creative director of recent fuzzy alien basher Prey, has stepped down from the studio after 18 years. “It is time for me to step out to spend some time with my son,” he wrote in a statement, “and reflect on what is important to me and my future.” Colantonio was also the co-creative director on…

Prey is a game for mugs

After Alec played the new Prey [official site], I grilled him on the mug. Morgan Yu gains the power to transform into inanimate objects, see, and roll around like a spooky ghost. But how many mugs does it have? How's life as a mug? He couldn't tell me, as he didn't have the mimic power in the preview version. Pfft! Luckily, Bethesda's marketing department recognise…

Prey 2 Is No Longer In Our Prayers

Though there have been murmurings (and indeed alleged leaked emails) that much-anticipated but much-troubled open world shooter Prey 2 had been snatched away from original dev Human Head and entrusted to the tattooed hands of Dishonored dev Arkane, Bethesda have now stated that the game is as dead as Zhora after three bullets in the back. But what's in a name?

The Smell Of Bullshit: Arkane ARE Making Prey 2

It's always such a lovely rosy feeling, having your time wasted, isn't it? That's what it's looking like Bethesda's Pete Hines and Arkane's Raphael Colantonio may well have done to us in the last couple of weeks, when we were told what now appears to be rubbish about Prey 2's development. When Nathan asked Hines directly whether Arkane had taken over development from Human Head,…

Bethesda Talks Prey 2, Denies Arkane Involvement

Where once Prey 2 burned as bright as an exploding star, it's now nearly blipped out of existence. Strikes and stall-outs allegedly sidelined the promising sequel for many moons, and talk of cancellation wrapped a rapidly tightening noose around its neck. But then, a twist: rumors rushed from the Internet's every exceedingly awkward orifice door that Dishonored developer Arkane had taken the reins on the…

Human Dead: Dishonored Dev Rumored To Be On Prey 2

Here at RPS, we're not often in the business of reporting rumors, but this one's too much of a doozy to leave inside the colossal organic womb ship from which all rumors are born. Prey 2's been MIA since time immemorial, with various rumblings of strikes, stall outs, and near-cancellation the only things even vaguely resembling a warm trail for us to follow. Now, however,…

Pray Tell: Whatever Happened To Prey 2?

It's terribly sad that all we seem to hear of Human Head's ambitious, semi-free form, Blade Runner-inspired shooter Prey 2 is the occasional murky rumour and contradiction about its troubled status. Not so long ago word abounded that it had been taken down the bottom of the garden and shot by Bethesda, which after slightly too long a wait was then officially disputed. We've just…

Rumor: Prey 2 Development Stricken By Dev Strike?

Do you remember where you were when you first heard that Prey 2 might be dead? Me neither. But I remember where I was when I heard it emerged from the wreckage with a few bumps, bruises, and a sizable slip out of 2012  - mostly because that was yesterday. Bethesda chalked it up to the fact that "development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year,…

Prey For Rune 2

With official confirmation still lacking as to whether Prey 2 is currently bleeding out by the bins out the back of Bethesda HQ or if the great hunt will yet continue, one of the many additional questions is what might become of developer Human Head. Sounds like they're pondering a resurrection of their first game, viking-based brawler Rune. The 2000 Unreal-powered stabbing'n'jumping title is, apparently,…

Ugh: Prey 2 Seems To Have Been Cancelled

A NeoGAF poster has spotted that an announcement about the cancellation of Prey 2 seems to be in the pipeline. No official word from Bethesda yet, but tweets from a Human Head employee seem to back it up. I'm honestly really surprised by this. After Dishonored this seemed like Bethesda's most promising title, as evidenced by our interview from late last year. It's hard to…

Pray Tell: A Prey 2 Interview

Following the story of US Marshall Killian Samuels, acting as a bounty hunter on an alien world, Prey 2 promises freedom of choice in an alien city. At the Eurogamer Expo we got to see two parts of the game in action, an early level with lots of shooting and a later area, about a quarter of the way through the game, that showed a…

Killian The Name Of: Prey 2

Prey 2’s Game Director, Chris Rhinehart, has been talking through the events seen in the early trailers for the game. There are three separate commentary videos, the last of which hit the internet yesterday. Here’s some thoughts and analysis on what we see, what we’re told and what remains totally unclear. Before you start watching though, one thing that doesn’t remain unclear is the ending…

Rock Opera: Tommy’s Back In Prey 2

Yes, it's that oldest of all the jokes. But I'm afraid a screenshot of Tommy's actual back is all we're getting from Human Head today. Given exactly thirty-two in every five hundred and twenty-eight people on the internet were vocally distressed to discover that Prey 2 would be ditching the first game's Native American protagonist Tommy in favour of a white soldierdude named Killian Samuels,…

Your Preyers Answered: Prey 2 Screenshots

Quakecon has come and gone, gibs have been aged, the Great Lord Carmack hath spoken, and yet again nothing was mentioned about Doom 4. But what have appeared are Bethesday-based screenshots. There's no point in reposting the Rage pics, as they're all the same ones we had a week ago for our hands on, so you can see them there. But below there are the…

Bountyful Harvest: Prey 2 Footage

Mercy, this E3 is turning out to be a generous one. Next up we've finally got some in-game footage of alien bounty hunting sim Prey 2. It turns out that the excellent CG trailer we saw last week was actually hugely faithful to the game proper, and not at all the flight of fancy it could have been. The following footage also solves the mystery…

Interview: Prey 2’s Oddness, Freedom & Ians

So we already know the broader picture of Prey 2 - a sandbox 'alien noir' world, with you as a bounty hunter taking on contracts - and how it's a far cry from the first game, but what about the details? Let's ask Prey 2 developer Human Head's project lead Chris Rinehart and chief creative officer Jim Sumwalt for a closer look at just how…

Preview: Prey 2

I'm very surprised. Good surprised, not bad surprised. Prey is not a game I feel anything about, to be completely honest. I know it has its fans, but for me it remains part of that mass of id Tech 4-based stodgy shooters which went heavy on bio-mechanical corridor-pounding gloss at the expense of play I found truly engaging, despite early-game experiments with big ideas. Prey…
