A couple of weeks ago, there was a rumor that Bethesda’s Prey 2 has been canceled. Today, the company clarified the rumor and revealed that the game is not really canceled but will not make its originally planned release this 2012.
According to Bethesda, the development process for Prey 2 didn’t progress much and wasn’t pleased with the game’s quality as of this moment. Here’s an official statement by Bethesda:
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.
