Following recent cancellation rumours, Bethesda has today confirmed that the Human Head shooter Prey 2 is still in the works.
“Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned,” said Bethesda on their blog.
“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”, the post continued.
“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.”
Bethesda is currently adding the final polish to the first round of Skyrim DLC and working on Arkane’s Dishonored, which is looking very promising indeed and is scheduled to release later in the year.
