Earlier today a statement was made from Bethesda’s Pete Hines about Prey 2 via IGN. ”I can be very clear about this. At one point, we looked at Prey 2 and decided that in its current state, with all the money, time, and resources we put into it, it didn’t meet our expectations. So we decided to pull the plug from our end.” This has led many to believe that the term pull the plug has meant that they canceled Prey 2. But fear not, Bethesda has just released a press statement as follows:
“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.”
So there we have it, the game is not being canceled but delayed. Glad that is over and good news all around then, better to have issues and delay the game then call it a day and pull the plug.
