Human Head Off Prey 2?

Human Head has not worked on Prey 2 since November, reports Shacknews citing a "source who asked not to be identified." According to their story, the developer on the first-person shooter sequel stopped working on the game as a negotiating ploy to get a better deal with ZeniMax, and that today's announcement that Prey 2 is delayed suggests a new developer may be announced for the project as a result. That would also explain why Human Head recently raised the possibility of developing Rune 2, and the Shack story indicates Human Head's negotiations to work on a high profile project are going well. They also have the following noncommittal response from ZeniMax to questions about all this: "we aren't commenting on the game's development beyond what was said in the statement that was released this morning."

It's not an excuse, it's a reason they're not being shitty. No business is going to say "well hey, screw the contract, you guys did good work... here's a bonus." Expecting that is ridiculous.

Of course that happens, in fact it happens most often with successful products. It happens with companies and their employees in the form of bonuses and so on, there are hundreds of real world examples. No, it's not a contractual requirement but likewise it doesn't mean that they can't be criticized just because you say so.

You sound like a lawyer trying to excuse weasel behavior through technicalities. They could have given them anything but chose to use a contract technicality to get out of it. The fact that you think that's ok because its the letter of the contract doesn't mean the rest of us can't point out how shitty it was considering how successful the product was.
