New Xbox, new games prepare for May unveiling on CNN Money
article looking ahead at the upcoming E3 extravaganza. The story includes the
surprising revelation that Prey ("A Talon Brave Game") is not dead, but is now a
DOOM III engine game being handled by an as-yet unrevealed third-party developer
that will be shown at the expo:
The show's biggest surprise, though, will
likely be the revelation of "Prey". Gamers first heard of "Prey" in 1997. The
game, originally about a Native American who fights several nefarious alien
races, was thought to be cancelled, but quietly restarted a few years ago. The
new version will use the "Doom 3" graphics engine and is said to be a visually
striking title. There's no word on whether the story has changed.
3D Realms, makers of the popular "Duke Nukem" series, originally worked on
"Prey," but word is they have handed development to a third party and are
overseeing work on the game. Take Two Interactive Software (Research) is the
likely publisher for the game, given its relationship with 3D Realms, but has
not made any announcements.
