Prey 2 Re-Announced

Earlier
this week Bethesda announced that
Prey
2
was set for release in
2012, and that development was being handled by the original team at
Human Head Studios. It was also revealed that the game game would not
utilize the id Tech 5 engine, which is still under heavy
construction. Pete Hines of Bethesda Softworks explained that IT5 was
not an option for
Prey 2
because work would not be complete by the time the engine made it’s
debut in id Software’s latest title,
RAGE.
Instead, the game is described as using “cutting-edge” id
technology by its developers at Human Head. No details on this
mystery engine have been unveiled, but one possibility is that id
Software is leasing a specially-designed game engine that has been
specifically tailored to
Prey
2.

There is also the chance that the game will be using a more dated
technology that has been reworked and upgraded.

When the
game was first announced in 2008 it was still under the control of 3D
realms and the Radar Group, but in 2009 Bethesda acquired the
franchise and the original developers are exited to be working with
their new publisher. Chris Rhinehart, project lead of
Prey
2
, stated that the game
“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.” He also reports that the team is exited to show gamers what
they have been working on and hopes that they will share the same
enthusiasm toward this sequel. So far no other information has been
released on the game’s storyline or mechanics, but it is speculated
that some credible media may start to surface in the next few months.
