Prey 2 Confirmed For 2012
Bethesda Softworks confirmed today that a sequel to Prey is in development at Human Head Studios. Prey 2 will be released for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in 2012.
Prey was a first-person shooter released for PC and Xbox 360 in 2006. Tommy, a former soldier, is abducted by aliens and must battle his way through the Sphere, their enormous starship. In order to do so, he must learn to navigate the ship's various portals and gravity fields. Another interesting feature was Tommy's ability to detach his spirit from his body in order to scout ahead or solve certain puzzles.
“We are thrilled to be working with Bethesda on Prey 2,” said project lead Chris Rhinehart. “Prey 2 will provide gamers the opportunity to explore a new facet of the Prey universe, one that offers fast-paced action in an open, alien world. We’re excited to show gamers the title we have been working on and hope they will be as excited by this title as we are.”
Additional details on Prey 2 will appear in the May issues of Official Xbox Magazine and PlayStation: The Official Magazine. Magazines throughout Europe will run previews as well.
