A few minutes ago, Bethesda Blog released an update on Prey 2. The game was rumored to be having many development problems and was thought to have been canceled, although no official statement had been made by Bethesda. Now however, they’re saying that the game is still on track for being made, but that it has been pushed back to 2013. Here’s the official update:
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.
As much as I’m relieved that the game isn’t cancelled, I’m still a bit hesitant about the entire thing. Do you think that Bethesda had plans to cancel it, or maybe still do? We’ll see what happens when more details are released. We here at OnlySP will be following the story closely, so keep it right here!
