Report: Human Head hasn't been working on Prey 2 since November

An anonymous source has revealed that Human Head hasn't worked on Prey 2 at all since November, chiefly due to a contract dispute with publisher ZeniMax.


The developer allegedly stopped working on the game in November in order to negotiate a better deal. In response, most of the development staff had been fired, with the hopes they'd be rehired once a contract renegotiation had been reached. However, ZeniMax broke off all communication with the studio in January.

There was some progress with the labor negotiations in late February, but the talks "soured" on the 2nd March, which is where the situation remains today.

Bethesda had released a statement earlier stating, "Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned" and that "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."

Damn, now we have to wait even longer. I have been waiting for Prey 2 since I finished the first Prey... it has been years, and I still remember the first time I played this game.... six hours straight, and there I finished the game (long for the game I know).

Shame, this game looked like one of the more intriguing titles this year...

I tteid to play "Prey" so mnay times, but ultimately just tossed the disc, box and memories of it in the trash. I loathed that game.

I will admit, that the game is incredibly easy, since you can't really die... Even on Cherokee the game is relatively easy. I still enjoyed the game though, and have completed it plenty of times, but each time it takes me about a day (few hours) to complete it xD
