Bethesda has sent word that Human Head’s upcoming shooter Prey 2 has been delayed and will not be released in 2012. According to the release, the delay is the result of “the fact that game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year, and the game does not currently meet our quality standards.” The announcement goes on to state that they have made a substantial investment and that they regret disappointing fans, but that they “are determined only to release the AAA game that fans rightfully expect, and are unwilling to compromise our quality standards to meet a release schedule.”
The original Prey was released in 2006 for the 360 and PC. The sequel, scheduled to ship for the 360, PC, and PS3, is eschewing its predecessor’s twisting corridors and traditional style for an open-world design and greater character interaction. A new release window was not announced.
