Prey Announced

Following-up on the revelation that Prey is once again in development, 2K Games sends along the official (re) announcement of the game, along with an image of an upcoming PC Gamer cover that is an actual Prey screenshot. Here's the announcement:
New York, NY – April 26, 2005 – 2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), and 3D Realms today announced Prey, a revolutionary first person shooter for PC and a next-generation console system in development at Human Head Studios, under the direct supervision of 3D Realms.

“The initial concept for Prey had been incubating for a while, waiting for the right opportunity to come along,” said George Broussard, President of 3D Realms. "We jumped at the chance to create this game with a talented developer like Human Head Studios and next-generation technology like the Doom 3 engine."

Scott Miller, CEO of 3D Realms, added, "Prey is special for many reasons, including several new and original gameplay features and a tightly integrated story that packs an emotional punch, unlike other first person shooters."

“Our collaboration with 3D Realms has been enormously rewarding,” added Timothy Gerritsen, CEO of Human Head Studios. “With their help, Prey is sure to breathe new life into the first person shooter genre with a compelling story, innovative gameplay mechanics and dazzling imagery, which is powered by our significantly enhanced version of id Software's original Doom 3 engine.”

Prey will be exclusively showcased at this year’s E3 Expo by ATI in a movie theater-style exhibition. For the world exclusive first details on the game, look for PC Gamer’s June issue featuring Prey as its cover story, arriving on newsstands in early May. Prey is currently scheduled for a 2006 release.

I have the new issue of PC Gamer (although you can find the pics all over the web now) and Prey looks sweet. I'll be looking forward to this one.

Somebody mentioned earlier about a publisher having two different game engines. 3DRealms is over-looking Prey. Prey is from Human Head Studios who is using a modified Doom 3 engine. 3DRealms has their own project, DNF. DNF will be using a modified Unreal 3 engine (from what I understood...) When Prey is done...it will ship. It has nothing to do with 3DRealms. George B even stated this in the 3DRealms forums last week.

Why are they using different engines? Because they can and wanted to.
