Prey 2 is rumoured to have been cancelled.

PS Focus claims to have heard from a "reliable source" that Bethesda will make an official announcement on the game's discontinuation next week.

Developer Human Head Studios has not offered a status update on Prey 2 for some time. Moreover, three scheduled press conferences about the title were recently cancelled.

Bethesda has remained tight-lipped on the future of the project, declining to comment on the speculation.

Prey 2, a follow-up to the 2006 first-person shooter, was announced in March 2011. The game was being developed using an engine supplied by id Software.

Bethesda was planning to release the game for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year.
