Bethesda says Prey 2 still isn't worth talking about

Sometimes when a publisher and developer go quiet about a game awhile, it means they're waiting to emerge, phoenix-like, with new information, a release date, and a snazzy trailer. That isn't the case for Prey 2, Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines told IGN.

“We appreciate that folks are displeased that we haven’t had any update or any info on Prey 2, but whatever your displeasure is, you can’t even be remotely as unhappy about it as us,” Hines said. “We spent years and millions of dollars and a ton of effort trying to help Human Head make a great Prey 2 game. What we said the last time we said anything was that it’s not up to our quality standards."

And that's still the case Hines said. He didn't address rumors that Arkane Studios, the team behind Dishonored, has taken over work on Prey 2 from Human Head. Whatever it is right now, it's just not good enough to warrant talking about. If and when that changes, Hines said, Bethesda will deliver an update.

"What is the chance that we have some amazing, unbelievable game and we’re just not talking about it for no reason? Zero," he said. "This is a business."

    "This game really is a piece of shit guys, trust us, you really don't want to play it." -Bethesda Softworks, in a groundbreaking first for the industry, tells the public that their game in development just isn't worth playing, further adding, "Just trust us on this one guys. Seriously, you don't want to play it." When we reached out to an avid gamer that frequents games forums on the internet for comment, he/she was reported as saying: "ZOMG I JUST WANT TO PLAY DIS GAEM NAAAAOOOOOOOO!!!11!!" Talk about a conflict of interest... :P

    It had so much promise; hopefully Arkane will be able to finish it.
