Arkane now working on Prey 2?

We saw Prey 2 in action a few years back at Gamescom and at the time it looked wonderful. Unfortunately, since then the game seems to have went into limbo, with developer Human Head seemingly falling out with publisher Bethedsa.

Well, it seems there has now been yet another twist in this tale, at least if a source at Kotaku is anything to go by. The site is claiming that development is now taking place at Arkane Studios, aka the team behind Dishonored.

According to Kotaku, since the game was announced at E3 in 2011, it's moved around quite a few times, first it was at Human Head, then for at 'least a few months' it headed to Obsidian. In fact Bethesda even tried to get Rebellion to take over development, before it landed at its current home at Arkane Studios.

Apparently some Arkane team members aren't too happy to be working on the game, although those higher up at the studio have said they should "forget that it’s called Prey 2 and just treat it like a new System Shock."

Arkane has a team in Austin, Texas and one in Lyon, France. One of these teams is said to be working on a Dishonored sequel while the other takes up Prey 2 duties.

What do you think?

Meh, wasn't impressed with it last time it was shown, even less interested now the developers working on it don't want to be.

Prey 2 (presumably) gameplay trailer was kinda impressive tbh. That and screenshots/concept art looked like a good first person Mass Effect...

I admit, seeing Arkane's name takes my interest level from only half interested to very very interested. They could easily pull a Far Cry and make it a completely different game despite the title. So long as it doesn't pull anyone from Dishonoured2, I'm on board with this.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
