If you had any doubts about the nature of the Alien Noire website, put them to bed. An interesting feature on Polygon talks to the fans behind the site, which hosts a petition asking Bethesda to finish the game and acts as a community hub for news and fan interaction. Prey 2 seems to have been in the works since at least 2008; it was announced in 2011 for a 2012 launch but was then delayed and has since gone silent. Bethesda has said the sequel is still in the works but there have been some troubling rumbles about its relationship to series developer Human Head. Maybe we’ll hear something about it now that next-gen silences are breaking.

As a person who is relatively new to MMO gaming, the Holy Trinity (damage, healer, tank) is still a fresh concept to me, and I am not tired of it. But others don’t feel that way. Bethesda hears their cries, and are creating a game that does contain trinity roles without necessarily requiring them all to be present for 4+ person group content.
