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."

But see this speaks directly to my point... that's just CDP's angle, their way of getting headlines and attention and hopefully sales and loyal customers. Now you can say "well I like that method of persuasion" and sure, so do I, but never doubt for a minute that if TW2 sells better on Xbox they will be console devs from then on, or if their publisher wants to sell some DLC they will do so.

No, I don't think they would do that. If they only cared about making profit by any means, as you suggest, they wouldn't have offered any free DLC in the first place and the Enhanced Edition upgrades would never have been provided for free for existing owners. When they decided to remove the game's DRM from the publisher-distributed retail versions, they did so against Namco's will. They directly opposed a publisher in favor of the customers. They're also offering free GOG.com DRM-free copies of Witcher 2 to anyone who bought the game from anywhere else. Again, they don't have to do this but they believe that generating good will from their customers will ultimately result in better business.

So again, while there are many ways to generate profit, not all of these ways involve screwing the customer and there are companies that understand this.
