Prey 2 Has Not Been Cancelled, But It Has Been Delayed

Prey 2 has not been cancelled as an earlier rumour suggested. Instead, the alien bounty hunting first-person shooter has been delayed through 2012, which Bethesda Softworks announced this morning through the use of a written statement. The reason for this push back is quality control, cites the publisher:

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.

Although a delay is something none of us hope for, it’s great to hear that quality control reigns supreme in the end. Human Head Studios did a good (and underrated) job with the original Prey, so I have faith that they will release a quality product with its sequel.

Read the full statement below:

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.
