The Next Game From Bethesda Softworks Is... Prey 2?

Looks like Bethesda Softworks is set to officially reveal Prey 2, sequel to the 2006 first-person shooter that was heavy on gravity-flipping gameplay, Native American lore and alien killin'. French gaming magazine Joystick may give our first look at the Bethesda-published game.


The existence of another Prey game is certainly no secret. Developer Human Head Studios was reportedly working on the game under the watch of the Radar Group. But that was before Bethesda Softworks' parent company Zenimax Media snapped up the rights to the game which was formerly a 3D Realms and 2K Games property.


Bethesda has a shooter-heavy product slate in 2011, with Brink, Hunted: The Demon's Forge and id Software's Rage planned for release this year. A 2012 release date for Prey 2 doesn't seem unreasonable.

No concrete details yet or confirmation from Bethesda that Prey 2 is on the way, but if this Joystick mag cover is accurate, guns will be pointed at alien faces in something named Prey 2. We'll update if Bethsoft reps respond.

Prey 2? Why? What's worth salvaging from such a trash IP?

I mean, the only notable thing about Prey to me was that I bought a downloadable version from a merchant that subsequently went out of business and sent me a boxed copy so I could continue to have access. It was a nice gesture, but seeing the game again just brought back terrible memories from my experience playing it that I had successfully repressed.
