Project canned six years after game was first unveiled

Prey 2 cancelled

Bethesda has confirmed what the entire industry suspected to be true – Prey 2 has been cancelled.

"It was game we believed in, but we never felt that it got to where it needed to be – we never saw a path to success if we finished it," Bethesda vice president Pete Hines told Cnet.

"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."
