What the hell happened to this game? I remember posters at Gamestop with a release date and it being cancelled really close to that release date. I was looking forward to playing it and thought that the airplane trailer was cool and unique. It felt like an alien invasion movie with that eerie and creepy vibe to it. I remember hearing that they brought it back to development but then the company working on the game took it down from their website or something. It's been really quiet since then, anyone have any news about it?

I heard Arkane studios are working on it! and that it is said to be released by 2016. Man that's a four year delay! shit

Wow! I'm really glad to hear that it's back on track though. I watched the airplane trailer for it again earlier today and was already missing it.

Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned. 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.

last time i checked they changed development team or weren't really happy with it. But it's not canceled. I was really looking forward to it myself. I actually got to answer them questions during the livestream in 2011

Ahhhh, they're doing the whole "When its done" thing huh... I'm glad to see that they're actually focused on what the fans want instead of what they want though. That's actually really cool.

Just as long as Prey 2 has spirit walking from the first game I don't mind waiting.

They have not been upfront about what is going on. By the way, look up the demo when you get the chance.

I remember being blown away by the visuals. Mirror reflections!!!

That was ever such a long time ago.

I'm not sure how accurate this is but I'm remember reading that when Arkane took over the Prey 2 IP they scrapped everything that had already been done and were going to make a whole new game from scratch?

Yes, I too remember reading something like that. A game should only take around 3 years of development for it to be good, and if its true that they did start from scratch, its very possible that this is reason why its taking so long to be released. God only knows whats happening with The last guardian.
