Prey 2 Cancellation Rumors

Dutch site PSFocus reports hearing from multiple reliable sources that Bethesda Softworks has cancelled plans for Prey 2, Human Head's first-person shooter sequel. Game Informer contacted Bethesda and were told they had no comment. They also note that Game Developers Conference talks about the game were cancelled months in advance.

They're probably cancelling it for current consoles and pushing it as a 2013 release with new consoles. The game looked great, but there's probably a lot more work to do, so at this point if it'll take them another year to finish, it would make sense for them to ride the wave of a console launch (plus PC sales) rather than limit the game to horribly aging tech.

Although that would be nice, I seriously doubt that's the case here. Updating the game for next-gen consoles would require a significant amount of time and resources, as the engine and assets would all need to be upgraded and/or redone. Also, I wouldn't expect new consoles until at least 2014.

More realistically, Bethesda cancelled the game because it wasn't making the progress they wanted. Probably a few missed milestones and/or had disagreements on the game's direction. When someone refuses to give a comment, it almost always means "yes." After all, if the game wasn't cancelled, why wouldn't Bethesda just confirm the fact? They'd have no reason to hide the fact that a game they've already announced is still in development.
