Bethesda has issued a statement denying all reports of Prey 2 being cancelled, instead confirming the game is very much alive.
The only downside to this announcement is that the game has now slipped from its original 2012 window due to concerns over quality. The publisher issued the following statement:
This fantastic news. The game was showing such promise that we couldnâ€™t believe that Bethesda would actually pull the plug. The added wait until 2013 is a bit of a downer, but at least thereâ€™s still a game to look forward to. There must have been some serious quality issues to warrant full radio silence on the gameâ€™s future and implementing such a hefty delay on it. Hopefully Human head can deliver a superb game in 2013.
