In a statement released this Thursday, Bethesda revealed that the launch of Prey 2 will be delayed. In addition to that, the publisher disputed those rumors that suggested the cancellation of the game, which is developed by Human Head Studios.
“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,” says Bethesda in a statement. “We have made a substantial investment in game development to deliver the experience fans want. We 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.”
Announced last year, the sci-fi first-person shooter game was speculated for release sometime this year, but after the delay, chances are that it will come out sometime in 2013.
