    Awesome news if it turns out to be true!

    Is Prey the most delayed game series ever? The original game was going to be released around the time of Quake 1 and we got that in 2006(?) and now 6 years after it was first rumored it looks like Prey 2 might be back on track again.

    Prey 3 in 2025 anyone? :D

    I meant game series, but yeh HL3 is the current king. Although Prey 2 would need to be released for my statement to be true.

    Half-Life 3 has never even been announced and never officially confirmed to being worked on.
    I think Duke Nukem Forever takes that prize.

    It won't be the same PREY 2 we know.
    The one Human Head were working on... that looked so damn awesome.... is long gone.

    If this is true, it'll be a completely different take.

    I'm still interested, but, I'm gonna hold out on getting excited until one, it's officially announced. And two, I've seen it.
    I got way excited for PREY 2 as it looked awesome, then ZeniMax screwed over Human Head and canceled the game simply because HH wouldn't let ZeniMax buy their studio.

    Cool, thanks for the post! :cheers:

    Are they porting it to another engine... say the engine used with the new Doom? That could be a treat.

    The rumors back when they took over the project were they supposedly moved it over to CryEngine.

    Game supposed to be using modified Id4 engine but they probably use id6 if the mentioned doom.

    I dont think there was ever talk about moving to any other.

    That new trailer is not for Prey 2, Prey 2 has been canceled.

    The new Prey is a completely different game and I think it should have it's own thread.

    After Bethesdas treatment of Human Head, I will not support this title or Bethesda.

    ^ I always wondered about the whole fallout over Prey 2 and its untimely demise. I never actually was aware just how far into development HH got to.. at the same time, I'm not surprised in the least that a larger company like Beth could play bully in this way.

    Honestly, knowing this, I will not purchase this new Prey either.

    Ohh.. so this thread transformed into Prey Reboot now... GG Damien or Moderator xD

    The idea for Prey 2 is what interested me, hunting aliens as a bounty hunter, and the funky trailer with Johnny Cash.. just cool..

    Well.. the new game also looks cool, but I'm not sure what it's about after watching the trailer :T

    I loved the first game and I'll most likely play this one too. But it always irritated me that they weren't going to continue the same story or at least a similar one. Even the portals from the first game were gone which was an amazing gameplay feature back then.

    While I will forever be sad that I won't get to play Human Head's vision for PREY 2, I'm aware enough to realize crap like this happens more often then we realize.

    I've been saying for a few years now that the reason development on PREY 2 stopped was because ZeniMax/Bethesda tried to back HH into a corner so they could buy the studio, but HH refused as they wanted to stay independent.
    As a few key people from HH stated back in 2014 or so, shortly after Pete Hines was telling everyone that asked that the game "didn't meet their expectations for quality".

    It was an obvious line made to try and put Bethesda in the best light possible in the situation. Specially since a ton of people were excited for the new product.


    As for this new take...
    Firstly, I do find it annoying to reboot the series after only one game. We'll now be seeing people attempting to talk about Prey and constantly having to make the specification of either the 2006 game or the 2017 game.
    Also, Tommy was one of the most human and natural protagonists to have appeared in a FPS game. His dialog was believable, his reactions and emotions... believable. To see a fantastic performance ignored and a wonderful character continued is sad.

    BUT...
    Arkane are a great studio. I've enjoyed every product they've put out.
    Some are saying using the PREY name for this new game is brand recognition. While, in some ways, I can see that... it's not a big enough name that that really seems like the main reason they did this.
    Ultimately, it strikes me as Bethesda wanting to make this completely their own. Not wanting to continue something that 3DR/Human Head started.

    While hard to judge from a CG trailer, the concept at play here does look good. It instantly made me think of System Shock. Which, is always a great thing.
    And, they are definitely using the "hunter/prey" theme that was also core in the original game.
    I will probably forever be annoyed that this is PREY. Because it's attempting to whip away a fantastic game, and we'll never see the awesome looking PREY 2.
    But, I also see the possibility for something really fun and amazing here and I'm actually interested... and a little excited to see what Arkane can do.

    Conflicted. Much.

    ...I'm so annoyed.
    I'm sure this new Prey will be good, but it shouldn't be called Prey.
