A rumor has been circulating around the internet that Prey 2, the sequel to the lukewarm Prey, has been cancelled by Zenimax, owners of Bethesda. Whether this is true or not is still up in the air, but if it does turn out to be true, question will arise, as this game seems to be one of the most promising things to arise in the last year or so. What is Bethesdas response to all of this? Read more to find out.
Normally when this kind of news comes up, Bethesda is quick to shoot down such rumors. What has many worried is that Bethesda has replied with a no comment. That does not necessarily mean it is dead, but it does mean that the entire future of this game, and all the hard work, time, and money that has been spent on this project, could be up in the air at this point. From pure speculation, I cant think of anything that could have knocked this project down. Bethesda is flying high off of the massive success of Skyrim, and theres no project bigger than Prey 2 going on over there at the moment, other than them potentially just getting started with plans for the next Fallout, if theyve even done that. It was also well received by critics and the public, so lack of interest cannot be it.
We can only wait until Bethesda or Zenimax clarify the situation, but until that time, we can only wait and hope that this game does not go to the dogs. Maybe it could go the way of Sleeping Dogs. We will keep you updated as the situation progresses.
