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.
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.
