Prey 2 "was a full game, fun," claims ex-Human Head staffer

An ex-Human Head employee has taken to Twitter to state that Prey 2 "was a full game,and a crazy fun one."

According to the tweets pulled by PCgamesN, Jason L. Blair was a narrative designer and writer on the game for the last six months of its development.

Now at Volition, Blair took to Twitter to break his silence on the matter, after rumors of Arkane Studios taking over the project surfaced yesterday.

"This Prey 2/Arkane rumor is giving new life to a lot of old lies," he said. "I'm been quiet about this whole business but can't stay so anymore.

"I've worked at/with Human Head Games for years, including different stages of Prey 2 development .I was narrative designer/writer on Prey 2 for the last six months of its development at Human Head. It was a lot more than a demo. Prey 2 was a full game. And a crazy fun one. The team was small but you wouldn't have known it.

"What happened to Prey 2, from where I sat, was political. And petty. And potentially litigable. Human Head had a great game. I was heartbroken when Prey 2 went into limbo. Human Head deserved to have that game released. Frankly, they needed it.

"As for Arkane, I've enjoyed what I played of Dishonored. They have the chops. If the rumor is true, they'll likely do well with Prey 2. But I mourn that Prey 2 won't belong to Human Head. I mourn that my friends won't get recognition for what they accomplished."

Yesterday, it was reported on Kotaku that a source with knowledge of the game's development had claimed the project had shifted over to Arkane Studios.

Since the game’s debut at E3 2011, the game had also reportedly moved into the hands of Obsidian “for at least a few months.”

After the game was debuted, little to nothing was heard on the game, with rumors swirling around the Internet it has either been put o hold or cancelled entirely.

Bethesda has yet to comment on the game or the new rumors which have surfaced.
