Sharp-eyed gamers may have noticed a small (as a cover-story can be) nugget of goodness over the weekend. The French gaming magazine, Joystick
, revealed their April cover and said cover prominently featured Prey 2
. Details were sketchy et après sept ans, ma capacité de lire le français est un peu rouillé (Translation: "and after seven years, me no read French good no more").
Although details were/are scarce at this time, Bethesda has stepped in and confirmed that Prey 2
is "real" and will be released at some point in 2012. Human Head Studios is in charge of development and the game is being built with the id tech engine.
Chris Rhinehart, the project lead on Prey 2 was quoted with the following:
We are thrilled to be working with Bethesda on Prey 2. Prey 2 will provide gamers the opportunity to explore a new facet of the Prey universe, one that offers fast-paced action in an open, alien world. We’re excited to show gamers the title we have been working on and hope they will be as excited by this title as we are.
More details are promised in the May issues of Official Xbox Magazine
as well as the aforementioned Joystick
article... if you live in France... and read French.
