Not Massive: Prey 2 Cancelled

1386mugging

Bethesda has announced that the on-again off-again first person shooter Prey 2 has been officially cancelled. The original Prey, released in 2006, put players in the role of Tommy, a Cherokee who finds himself in the middle of an alien invasion. The game ended with the phrase “Prey will continue…” Since its release, the status of Prey 2 has been in constant limbo, with confirmations every year or so that the game was in development, on hold, back in development, back on hold, etc.

At PAX Australia, Bethesda confirmed that the game has been cancelled with Pete Hines stating:

It wasn’t up to our quality standard and we decided to cancel it. It’s no longer in development. That wasn’t an easy decision, but it’s one that won’t surprise many folks given that we hadn’t been talking about it. Human Head Studios is no longer working on it. It’s a franchise we still believe we can do something with — we just need to see what that something is.

The sequel was to be set years after the original Prey, and follow a human bounty hunter on an alien world.
