Despite prior fears that Prey 2 was canceled weeks ago, the announcement for the terrible news never came. Bethesda was tight lipped on the issue however, until today when they officially announced that Prey 2 is still going to be released, but it will not be making its original 2012 window of release. Instead, the game is being delayed until 2013.
The reason for 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.”
This is great news for fans who were hoping that the game would still be released and even better news that it is being worked on continuously to provide the best experience possible. It is a little strange that there appears to be issues with the development process of the title, but it seems that whatever that issue was, it is currently being resolved.
