Prey 2 announced for 2012
Bethesda Softworks has announced that the sequel to 2006’s hit Prey is scheduled for release in 2012 for both PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Prey 2 is being developed by Human Head Studios, the same team that developed the first game.
Released in 2006, Prey follows the story of Domasi “Tommy” Tawodi as he and his loved ones are abducted by aliens and taken to their ship, the Sphere. Using his spiritual powers given to him after a near-death experience, Tommy must rescue his girlfriend and save all mankind from the aliens.
“We are thrilled to be working with Bethesda on Prey 2,” said Chris Rhinehart, project lead. “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.”
Whether Prey 2 will continue with Tommy or focus on another character with spiritual powers is unknown at the moment, but we’re told to check out the May issue of PSM3 for the first look at the game.
