Rumors were flying around that Prey 2
was canceled. That was funny given the overwhelmingly positive response the game got at last year's E3. So Bethesda today came out with this official statement:
Development of Prey 2 has not been canceled 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 you go. The game's just going to take more time to get right. That's good that they are going to delay the game rather than try to put something out subpar. You definitely don't want to disappoint after all the good feelings it generated from last year's E3 showing
