Many gamers had been worried about Prey 2 since the rumor mill began circulating that the game had been cancelled. Publisher Bethesda has finally commented on the recent speculation and gave a definite answer: "Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled."
While Prey 2 has not been cancelled, it will not make it's 2012 release date as planned. Bethesda believes that the current progress on Prey 2 simply doesn't meet their high quality standards and they don't want to rush a game to meet a release date. The full comment from Bethesda can be read below:
"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."
