Prey 2 Not Cancelled, But Delayed

In a press release by Tracey Thopmson, Director of Global PR for Bethesda, it was announced that Prey 2 has not been cancelled. However, there will be a delay and the game will not be released in 2012.

The main portion of the press release reads as follows: “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. “

It’s always disappointing whenever a game is delayed for any reason, but I take comfort in the fact that this delay is because they want to push out the highest quality game they can. Hopefully, the extra time used will show in the end, because there’s nothing worse than a game that was delayed and still plays like crap. Oh well!
