yes indeed, thanks for the update and good to know it's still going. probably just delayed it to launch on new hardware, which isn't a bad idea. i would have loved Prey 2 like in 2009 or something, but since we've waited this long, might as well wait a while longer and get it with better specs.

Prey 2 countdown site appears, will unlock in 27 days – rumor

A countdown site going by the name of “Alien Noire” has popped up online, and NeoGAF users have dissected the source code, which seems to point towards a Prey 2 reveal in 27 days.

I have a feeling that Prey 2 could end up being a next-gen title.

Even so, I'd still imagine it will be released on X360 and PS3 as well and I doubt it will push the next-gen systems particularly hard.

At this transitional moment I doubt the so called "next-gen" title will bring much improved visual, physics and gameplay on the table.

First (supposed) daytime screenshot from one of the three hubs in the game.

Bethesda: Prey 2 teaser site is 'not something we're doing'

Remember the "Alien Noire" website supposedly counting down to a revelation about Prey 2? A recent update added a Prey 2 logo and more to the site. The site now also features logos for both Bethesda Softworks and Human Head Studios, Prey 2's publisher and developer, respectively.

You might think that using official logos would substantiate the site's legitimacy, but apparently that's not so, according to Bethesda. A spokesperson tells Joystiq, "I don't know what that is or who is doing it. It's not something we're doing." So there you have it.

LOL That countdown is absolute bullsh*t, You really think a real publisher would make a horrible countdown like that!?

It would be some kind of flash thing that looked a lot more impressive.

Prey 2 is dead!

The countdown ended and nothing. It might take a while longer to appear but that's still a very bad way to build hype, regardless of its authenticity.

I'd be very surprised if that website was official.

I actually saw the site (probably a glitch), it's just screenshots, videos and interviews, a forum, etc. Also in their news page it says they have a petition for the game.

It's got nothing to do with the makers, it's a fan site.

It's also obviously some kind of CMS site, Joomla or something.

It's apparently the launch of a fan-site dedicated to Prey 2. Here is what the author had to say:

People are going to be very angry and they have a right to be.

For those who cannot currently access the site: It is a fansite. We never expected it to get the response it did. Sorry for the subterfuge.

"A couple of months ago, some Prey 2 fans hungry for news and concerned for Prey’s legacy, set about creating a place fans could gather to show support for the next chapter in this exciting series.
We posted a countdown to the formal launch hoping a few diehard fans might take notice. We were surprised and overwhelmed by the response, with 50,000 hits in the first 48 hours!
Prey 2 means a lot to many people. While we’re not an official site, we hope our efforts to research and include all known Prey 2 material will show the depth and value this game experience can offer to fans old and new. Who wouldn’t want to play an open-world first-person shooter as a bounty hunter in an alien-noire setting? We hope others feel the same way and drop by to show their support for the game."
