Bethesda tight-lipped on possible Prey 2 cancellation

Publisher Bethesda Softworks has chosen not to comment on rumors that Human Head's Prey 2 is no longer in development, creating a bit of uncertainty over whether the sci-fi shooter will see the light of day.
Things aren't looking good for Prey 2, the Human Head-developed sci-fi shooter being developed for Bethesda. The company has not spoken publicly about the game in quite some time -- going as far as to cancel recent public appearances -- and amid rumors of a cancellation on Friday the company remains silent. Early in the day, rumors began circulating that that the title is no longer being published, with one outlet claiming that Bethesda is readying an official statement as early as next week. This comes just weeks after a no-show at the Game Developers Conference, where Human Head was set to speak about the game's development. When reached for comment, Bethesda officials told Gamasutra that the company is not saying anything further at this time, simply noting: "Thanks for reaching out but we aren't commenting on the story." Prey 2 was initially announced in 2008, two years after the launch of the original title on Xbox 360 and PC. Human Head said that the sequel would make some significant changes to the series, introducing both new mechanics and a brand new setting. Currently, Prey 2 is scheduled to launch on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC sometime later this year.
