Prey 2 Announced

Following the release of some concept art, this PDF press release from the Radar Group Website offer the official announcement of the Radar Group (thanks IGN), as well as their three debut titles Earth No More, Incarnate, and Prey 2. Word on the Radar Group, comprised of industry vets like Jim Perkins and Scott Miller, is: "Original Thinking™ entertainment entity to incubate, manage and produce Intellectual Properties for cross-media leveraging in video game and film markets." Yes, their thinking is so original, it's trademarked. Here's word on Prey and the other two games: :

Earth No More
Earth No More does away with the “lone-hero” shooter archetype, instead focusing on the dynamic between an ensemble cast that must learn to work together to survive the threat of an environmental extinction event. As Will Foster, a DHS chemical weapons specialist, you are among the first to respond to a gas attack on Washington, D.C. However, it soon becomes clear that the gas attack is a cover-up for something much more sinister. Earth No More is currently being developed in close collaboration with Recoil Games and is slated for release on next-gen consoles and PC.

Incarnate
Incarnate poses the question: Can evil ever die? The re-incarnated souls of history’s most evil people are converging on present-day Chicago. As Thomas Ludlow, you are recruited by a secret organization to hunt down and capture these ‘Incarnates’. But the further you dig into the reasons for their arrival, the more you learn of the true nature of your efforts and your own connection to the events unfolding before you. Stalk your prey in the wide open city, search for them in the dark places, and maybe you will survive long enough to solve the mystery of your own past. Can you break the chains of destiny, or will you let them bind you to your doom? Incarnate is currently being developed in collaboration with a yet-to-be-announced studio.

Prey 2
The follow up to “Action Game of the Year” (PC Gamer), reprise your role as Tommy, the native warrior who saved Earth from alien invasion in Prey. This time, abandoned and framed for the disappearance of his family and girlfriend, Tommy escapes an Earth that no longer wants him for a future that cannot survive without him. Building on the mind-bending portal and gravity-defying gameplay of the original with several innovative new twists, Prey 2 promises to once again take players into a compelling science-fiction world with breathtaking visuals and adrenaline-pumping action gameplay. Prey 2 is currently being developed in cooperation with Human Head studios and slated for Xbox 360 and PC platforms.

Pro Tip: Stop calling it "next gen" when the product has been out for well over a year.

On that note they can't call it nextgen when it ships because by then the company has invested 3-4 years of R&D. It's old.

Incarnate actually sounds pretty cool. Whether or not it'll end up that way is another matter entirely.

"lone-hero” shooter archetype", "environmental extinction event", "Incarnate poses the question: Can evil ever die" - all very lofty, how about just making fun games.

Next-gen consoles? So Xbox 720 and PS4 and the Xii?

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.

I bet we see many many more PORTALS in Prey 2. After the success of Portal and the praise Human Head got for having portals in the first title they would be foolish not to. I wonder if they will even go so far as having a portal gun in this one... wait and see.

that is correct, captain obvious.

If you make Rune 2, I will buy it.

P.S.
Don't waste time on the SP portion of the game.
+1. Rune was incredibly fun multiplayer, though the singleplayer was perfectly acceptable. A sequel to Prey is good news but Rune 2 would be MUCH better.

To be fair, Prey was an original 3DRealms IP to begin with.

I just thought I'd point out a little something funny. This company says it embodies "Game Development 2.0" and one of the things shown in the flash animation on their front page is "Only original IP." And one of their first projects is a sequel. Hilarious.

so basically instead of acting as a middle man with 3DR scott started a new company that will also act as middlemen for other developers. Plus he can get to use that tenuous title of "consultant"

Man, I am in the wrong fucking business

Come up with a catchier name Radar Group. Prey 2 is so boring. It's needs more pizazz! How about these?
