Prey 2 'in limbo', says developer

Human Head designer backs up notion the game's still coming

Human Head's open-world sequel Prey 2 isn't canned, it's just in a state of "limbo".


That's according to Human Head's Nathan Cheever, a designer at the studio, who corroborates with recent claims that the game hasn't been completely binned.

"BTW, P2 hasn't been officially canceled, only in limbo," said Cheever in a Tweet today (thanks Kotaku).

Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines in August denied reports that he had confirmed Prey 2's cancellation in a Dutch interview, blaming mistranslation.

The confusion surrounding the status of Human Head's sequel, Prey 2, started with publisher Bethesda confirming a delay beyond 2012 back in April, citing quality concerns.

Unlike the linear shooter gameplay offered by 2006's well-received original, Human Head has said Prey 2 will feature an open world for players to bounty-hunt aliens in. Check out a trailer here.
