Rumours are flying wild today that publisher Bethesda has cancelled their upcoming FPS title Prey 2, which follows on from the original source developed by Human Head Studios. Zenimax Media, who controls Bethesda Softworks, took control of the IP in late 2009, and since then it seemed a sequel was being worked on by Human Head Studios and all was well. However according to 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.
