You may remember the rumour Jason Schreier reported on a few years ago about the development of Prey 2. Basically, an anonymous source told Kotaku Arkane Austin had taken over the development of Prey 2 from Human Head.

Schreier reported on this story back in 2013. It’s been three years since this story broke so some of the details may have changed.

So long Prey 2, we hardly knew ye. Bethesda has officially confirmed that the sci-fi shooter, which looked reasonably promising when it emerged back in 2011, is no longer in production.

It's battle of contradictions! Bethesda's Pete Hines recently denied rumours that Human Head's Prey 2 was with Arkane, with studio CEO Raphael Colantonio also pouring ice water on the silly notion.

...except it's not so silly according to leaked emails from Colantonio to Arkane staff. He refers to Pre 2 as an "interesting opportunity" if they reboot it, and so they did.
