Where is Prey 2?

So where's Prey 2? That's the question Blues News is asking after a recent help wanted job posting emailed by Human Head Studios. The development studio is currently looking for additional employees to work in its Madison, WI offices. However Radar Group is the party behind the Prey sequel originally announced back in March 2007.

After emailing Human Head, Blues was redirected to Radar Group in regards to the Prey 2 status and have yet to receive a reply. However, superannuation stumbled across a blog  from a Human Head employee saying that they just signed a contract for a major title, and another claiming that employees were taking "week-long furloughs to help with the cash flow," indicating that there are no current projects, including Prey 2.

"Unfortunately, we can't comment on the status of Prey 2, other than to say that we've never announced that it has been in development, so I'm not sure the starting assumption is actually valid," Human Head originally told Blues. "However, we obviously have a strong attachment to the project, and it's certainly something we're very interested in developing."

According to the Prey 2 press release (PDF) distributed last year, players reprise the role of Tommy, the native warrior who saved Earth from alien invasion in the first title. The game is supposedly in development--in cooperation with Human Head Studios--for the Xbox 360 and PC.

    LOL, you were lucky to get Prey 1, didn't that take like 10 years to make?
    this is like asking where Duke Nukem Forever 2 is...

    Duke Nukem Forever Too is coming out?!

    Wow! When?! I can't wait!

    ^no kidding. The Prey engine that was developed in house had to be scrapped and then Prey ended up using a modified ID tech engine. They restarted development on it like 3 times and we were lucky it didn't end up being redone when it was 95% along once more like Duke was

    the game was fun. more difficult than most. great story and wolfenstein looks like its going to use the same gaming "spirit form". the only problem was the same boring enemies. but it was much better than the garbage that was area 51.

    Prey was surely a lot more interesting than Bioshock. I am still baffled why that game got so popular. When it came out, without even looking at reviews or screen shots I jokingly told everyone it is the best game ever made. But I was just joking, not sure what gives. Bioshock just felt like another revision of Kiss Psycho Circus but Prey basically does too.

    I falsely judged Prey 1 before I play it... what could be fun about some old indian clan??
    Eventually, had to play it at some time...
    To be honest, I was amazed how the directing of the game and story line was done.
    Gotta admit... I ENJOYED IT TO THE MOST \^_^/ WANT PREY 2 NOW.
  • FYI Duke Nukem Forever has been resurected. Today 3D realms forums has leaked knowledge Gearbox is working on the project. Stay tuned!

    I too think Prey was a really good game. I enjoyed it's voice acting, comedy and those damn gravity things. Simply awesome. I'd be ok if Prey 2 didn't come only because I fear it will not be as good.

    I really liked Prey. It gave me headaches when I first started playing it from the radical perception shifts (the guys also pukes when they start happening which I though was appropriate), though. For some reason, I can't even pin-point it, it was just fun. A bit on the short side though.
