Rumor: Prey 2 countdown site launched

New Prey 2 information coming on March 1?

February 2, 2013 / 08:18 AM EDT / (@salromano)

A new countdown site called “Alien Noire” surfaced online today. On it, a timer set to end in 27 days. But what’s it for?

Taking a look into the site’s source code reveals the following tags: “Prey, Prey2, Prey 2, FPS, Bethesda Softworks, Human Head Studios, Alien Noire.” The bottom of the page’s source code also says, “Tommy needs your help.”

It would look like the site is counting down to new information on Prey 2, Bethesda’s often delayed, but highly awaited sequel. Looking at the domain’s registration information, however, cannot confirm this. It is registered to “The Collective,” which resides at 17677 S. Muskogee Ave in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

“The Collective” could be a reference to Prey 2 character Dra’Gar, an Ceros mafia gang leader with teleportation abilities.

But unfortunately, we couldn’t find out how the address relates to Prey or Bethesda. Thus, we cannot confirm if Bethesda owns the domain. We’ll contact the publisher for comment.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    If it’s true than I’m quite happy. Prey was an under-appreciated, awesome FPS with fresh gameplay mechanics, awesome weapons, interesting characters and a story-line that had you hooked until the credits. One major plot twist will forever reside in the collective memory of anybody who experienced this masterpiece. The not so subtle announcement of a sequel at the very end was very well designed as well.

    I can’t wait and I do not mind the changes. As I do not play any military FPSes (they’re all the same and they’re financing real-life arms manufacturing http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-02-01-shooters-how-video-games-fund-arms-manufacturers ) I am only interested in more unique FPSes (Bioshock Infinite comes to mind) and Prey 2 looked exactly like that. I am still impressed by the demo video shown at GC11, it looked awesome.

    I hope it comes to Next Gen consoles.

      Very possible since SONY has that Feb 20th thing going on and MS is already talking about showing off the next Xbox in spring.

      Prey 2 to Next Gen? Don’t even think that!
      I’ve been waiting for this game so much time and now i’ll have to buy a new console to play that? No fucking.

        Current consoles are 7 years old if by now you are not ready to upgrade you should probably quit playing video games.. at least not play anything that will come out from now on.

          Unfortunately I live in a country where new consoles usually cost the equivalent of US$1000 or more. If you are stupid enough to spend that amount on a new video game, that is your problem.
          Not everyone has that kind of money to go out spending.

    About time! This was once on my top most wanted but took it off since its been off the radar for so long.

    Man if this comes out on the next batch of systems and looks like that original god damn trailer, then this will be the best delay ever in the history of delaying things to make them better.

    I liked Prey, but I don’t like the approach to the second one.
    Open World and such.

    The older footage of the game was impressive. I’ll gladly welcome it back with open arms.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I’ve been waiting for a new look at this game forever, it feels. Hope this is real.

    Man, this better be Prey 2. The game has been kind of just hanging in limbo for a while, and it’d be a damn shame if it never came to be.
