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…

Feature: Chris Rhinehart talks Prey 2

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…

Aliens On A Plane: First Prey 2 Trailer

The first Prey 2 trailer has dribbled onto the internet, like a splodge of molten entertainment. You'll find it contained after the jump, but be forewarned- it's an entirely live action affair, containing actual humans actually reacting to imaginary stuff. Thanks to RPS reader Gabe "Fear Factory" McGrath for sending this in. EDIT: Oh, snap! This isn't useless at all. It corroborates what Kotaku was…

Update: Prey 2: Not Id Tech 5: Has A Hat: OK?

Contrary to the entire games press' presumption yesterday, semi-unexpected sequel Prey 2 is not going to use the very shiniest, newest version of id Software's graphics engine, id Tech 5, after all. Bethesda's Pete Hines waggled his finger at IGN to correct the misconception, claiming that Prey 2's been on the drawing board for so long that id Tech 5 essentially turned up too late.…

Surprise! Prey 2 Confirmed

We've been hearing all manner of rumours about this over the last week, and now official word has arrived. By which I mean "an email." Games journalism: not always rocket science. Yes, Bethesda Softworks are going to publish a game called Hunted this year, and then a game called Prey 2 next year. Hooray! They sure do like their hunting and preying, though. What next?…

3D Realms To Continue “Portal Race”

IGN delivered an interesting quote in yesterday's Scott Miller interview, regarding the direction 3D Realms are taking with the new projects they're working on: While Prey pioneered the portal concept, Valve's Portal took it to an all-new level. It really shows what you can do when you focus on a single core cool gameplay concept. So, while Portal impressed the heck out of us, it…

Prey 2, 3D Realms 0

The keen-eyed super-spies at Shacknews spotted some briefly-appearing proof that a sequel to Prey is in development. The news slipped out when a website for a new production company, Radar Group, named some of the games on which it would be working. The company, set up by 3D Realms founder Scott Miller and his buddy Jim Perkins, intends to work with developers to take original…
