2013 is shaping up to be a mysterious gaming year with rumours of new consoles from Microsoft and Sony, and with Nintendo's Wii U establishing itself. We also have BioShock Infinite, Metro: Last Light, Crysis 3 and Aliens: Colonial Marines, but the year needs more games like Prey 2, to offset the usual barrage of military multiplayer shooters.
Click here for our reasons why.

Prey 2, as rumours of a cancellation have been quashed today thanks to a note from Bethesda.
Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned. The delay is due to the fact that game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year, and the game does not currently meet our quality standards. Prey 2 has shown great promise and we regret disappointing our fans. We have made a substantial investment in game development to deliver the experience fans want. We are determined only to release the AAA game that fans rightfully expect, and are unwilling to compromise our quality standards to meet a release schedule.The likely scenario moving forward is that we'll start seeing a roll out of new information in the early parts of 2013, though in a report over at Eurogamer, there's also a strong chance development will be picked up by someone other than Human Head as much of the game's delay has been due to a dispute between the developer and Bethesda parent company, Zenimax.
It's a shame it won't be this year, but we were so damn impressed with the showings AusGamers was privy to all of last year, we're just happy the game is still in development. Here's hoping everything is settled between the two companies and development continues on Human Head's part at their own hands.

PS Focus, the title has been canned and announcement will be coming next week.
Nothing has been confirmed yet, however Eurogamer is reporting that a Prey 2 presentation was supposed to be at the recent San Francisco GDC earlier this month, but was subsequently pulled out a few weeks before. This could be due to many things, and not just the rumoured cancellation, however it doesn't really help.
You can check out the game page which has all the latest news, screenshots and trailers. Keep an eye out for more as it comes to us, and hopefully it is just a rumour gone wild, as Prey 2 was shaping up to be a nice looking sequel.

The former is why we're here today, sharing an in-depth video interview with Human Head co-founder, Chris Rhinehart, who goes into detail about the game's mission structure, AI, our new protagonist, Killian, as well as revealing a little more about Tommy from the first game who also plays a major role here, and much, much more.
Once again we've served up the interview in both video and transcribed form, which you can check out collectively here.

Prey 2 and we're seriously at a loss as to how he's managed to maintain those jeans of his on an alien planet for six years without even so much as a tear (perhaps he started a denim industry there?!)
IGN also has new details regarding Tommy's role in Prey 2, with Human Head co-founder, Chris Rhinehart, telling them Tommy's abilities from the first game - Spirit Walk and Death Walk - would be "integral to his role and how he actually fits into the story."

AusGamers is home from the Con that is Quake... err Con, and alongside some awesome interviews in the works, a handful of in-depth hands-on previews and a head full of techno-babble from John Carmack, we also have some new media for both Prey 2 and Dishnored, in the way of new screens and few pieces of art.
The Prey 2 demo on-hand was exactly the same one we saw at Bethesda's BFG event, so the only new info to come out of QuakeCon for it is within the following screens, and our forthcoming chat with Human Head co-founder, Chris Rhinehart.
As for Dishonored, we saw a nice chunk of a gameplay demo, sat in on an in-depth Q&A with both Harvey Smith and Raphael Colantonio, then stole them for a one-on-two interview to talk about the game and first-person action development in general. For now though, feast your eyes on the respective screens by clicking either line of thumbnails below.

Prey holds a special place in the hearts of many gamers as one of those vapourware titles that was never going to come out, and then it finally, actually did - so with DNF on the cusp of release, a Prey 2 trailer deserves special recognition.
You can download it now locally for AusGamers and it will shortly be available for streaming!

Happy Easter from the AusGamers team! To help you celebrate such a whacky public break, we thought we'd buck the chocolate egg, no red meat, closed bottle-ship trend for the day, to take your mind off this confused planet and to an equally dangerous place called Exodus - the alien planet that is the setting for Prey 2 from Human Head Studios.
We actually sat through an in-depth unveiling of the game out at Bethesda's BFG 2011 event and also spoke with Human Head co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, Jim Sumwalt, giving us the chance to serve up a heady preview for you, as well as a revealing interview answering as much as we can with what little we've been given so far. We also have a handful of new images you can check out by clicking the thumbnails below.

Prey 2 game page. No other info just yet, but stay tuned! The Bethesda blog has a tiny snippet mentioning that you can expect to see some more previews coming soon:
In the process, we’ve seen some comments focusing on what’s not in Prey 2. Between now and the game’s release next year, we’ll be sharing plenty of details on what’s in the game. For starters, we encourage you to read previews in OXM, PlayStation The Official Magazine, and other publications worldwide. And in the coming weeks, you can expect more previews, interviews, etc. online. Once that’s all out there, you’ll know more about what (and who) is in the game, and how it all relates to the original game.

We still don't know anything else about the game at this point. Bethesda promises that the first details will appear in the May issue of PSM3, which I can only assume is one of those ancient tomes that our ancestors used to communicate with.
Prey 2 is scheduled for a 2012 release on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Check out the trailer below or click here for the HD streaming option.
