[IGN] What Went Wrong With Human Head's Prey 2?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Quote:

In November 2011, production on Prey 2 came to a permanent full-stop. Disagreements between its developer and publisher caused a chain reaction that ultimately led to the death of Human Head’s version of Prey 2, the rights to which have since reverted back to Bethesda and allegedly landed in the lap of Dishonored developer Arkane.

 

"Bethesda denied further funding of the project, and started failing milestones,” asking for changes and fixes without following through on its previous promise to give the team more time

I thought it was an interesting read. Never thought Bethesda was this way

Not defending them, but I don't think it's Bethesda's fault..

I was kind of curious about this one, but A) The trailers I saw of the sequel didn't even seem to have much to do with the original, B) It was apparently unpopular enough that you now actually can't buy the game on Steam. (I'm sure you can find it somewhere)

Fun fact: Prey originally came out under a Steam-clone even worse than Origin.
