Leaked emails reveal Prey 2 in development at Arkane
Dishonored developer's Austin, Texas branch reportedly working on reboot of first-person shooter that won't use any of Human Head's work.
Meanwhile, Arkane Studios' office in Lyon, France is working on a sequel or successor to Dishonored, according to a source familiar with the project.
The leaked emails from Arkane creative director Raphael Colantonio show that the Prey 2 reboot was greenlit in late May, information featured in a May 31 Kotaku report.
On the same day, Colantonio reportedly sent out an email informing staff not to speak with the press about the game. "Now that the news is out, we'll be contacted left and right by press sneak f***s who will want to know more. Please don't answer to any of their requests," he reportedly said.
According to the report, Arkane Austin plans to make Prey 2 a spiritual successor to System Shock 2. None of the work former developer Human Head completed on the project will be used, according to one source.
Asked for comment on the report today, a Bethesda representative told GameSpot, "nope."
Prey 2 was officially announced in 2011, and a playable build of the game was shown off during the Electronic Entertainment Expo later in the year. The game was delayed in 2012 due to quality issues, while Bethesda said in June that the game is "simply not good enough."
