When contacted by GameSpot, a Bethesda representative said the company had no comment on the report.

Bethesda Softworks first announced that it had enlisted developer Human Head to create the first-person shooter sequel last year. A trio of Prey 2 presentations had been scheduled for this month's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, but those were canceled by Bethesda prior to the event.

The game was announced as having a new protagonist (also an alien abductee) and a variety of gameplay adjustments. The developers had planned to ditch multiplayer in favor of a focused single-player campaign, and eschewed the discrete levels of the original in favor of an open-world format. Additionally, players could take a variety of approaches to solve their problems, from using brute force to more diplomatic means.
