Prey 2 Not Using Tech 5

The announcement of Prey 2 from yesterday stated Human Head's upcoming first-person shooter sequel "is being built on the cutting edge id tech engine from id Software," which lead to our presumption that this referred to the Tech 5 engine that will power RAGE and DOOM 4. This turns out not to be the case. There's a footnote updating IGN's story about the announcement, where they correct their own Tech 5 assumption, as it turns out the game will use a slightly less cutting edge prior version of the engine. They quote Bethesda Softworks' Pete Hines on the topic: "This game has been in development for quite a while and id Tech 5 is still in progress (until Rage ships, and probably even after). So it really wasn't an option." Thanks VG247.

Cool with me, as long as it is fun to play I'd be fine if it was built using the Quake III engine.
Well said. It was the obsession with the absolute latest cutting edge tech that killed Daikatana and DNF. If they'd just stuck with the engine they'd started with things may have turned out different.
