Yesterday the news broke that a French gaming magazine, Joystick, featured Prey 2 on the front cover but any links to a credible source quickly disappeared. As such it sounded like a rumour but today Bethesda Softworks have officially announced that we will be playing the sequel to Prey in 2012. Not very many details have been confirmed other than the systems it will be available on, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Rest assured we will bring you more news as we get some.
Bethesda Softworks, a ZeniMax Media company, today announced that Prey2, the sequel to the popular 2006 game, is scheduled for release in 2012 and will be available for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation3 computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows. First details on the game will be revealed in the May issue of PSM3.
Prey 2 is being developed by Human Head Studios, the studio that created Prey, the original, award-winning game. Prey 2 is being built on the cutting edge id tech engine from id Software.
“We are thrilled to be working with Bethesda on Prey 2,” said Chris Rhinehart, project lead. Prey 2 will provide gamers the opportunity to explore a new facet of the Prey universe, one that offers fast-paced action in an open, alien world. We’re excited to show gamers the title we have been working on and hope they will be as excited by this title as we are.””
