Bethesda officially announces Prey 2 -Updated-
3/14/2011 9:05:00 AM
We knew this was coming from the leaked magazine cover
, but Bethesda has gone and announced that they will be producing Prey 2
Human Head is, again, working on the game
and it will be using the latest id tech engine. So, I think this might be the >first game to be announced (Doom 4 and a new Quake game will use it also) that uses the id Tech 5 engine, but I could be wrong
-Update- Prey 2 won't be using id Tech 5 as I previously reported. Pete Hines of Bethesda has confirmed to IGN
that it will be using something else.
