Prey 2: Not canceled, just delayed

Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

Good news, everyone! The Blade Runner-esque sci-fi action game Prey 2 isn’t canceled after all. Publisher Bethesda’s director of global PR Tracey Thompson just released this statement to clarify previous rumors:

Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled, but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned. The delay is due to the fact that game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year, and the game does not currently meet our quality standards. Prey 2 has shown great promise, and we regret disappointing our fans. We have made a substantial investment in game development to deliver the experience fans want. We are determined only to release the AAA game that fans rightfully expect, and are unwilling to compromise our quality standards to meet a release schedule.
