Prey reboot revealed at Bethesda's E3 conference

Prey 2 was notoriously cancelled a while back, after a deep stint in development hell. Bethesda stated that they were unhappy with the game's quality, leading to fears the franchise had been shelved entirely.

Thankfully, Bethesda has rebooted the franchise, handing it off to Dishonored developer Arkane Studios to build.

"Arkane Studios, the team behind the critically acclaimed Dishonored series, is bringing their unique vision to Prey, a first-person sci-fi action game that reimagines the franchise from the ground up… with an added psychological twist.""You are Morgan Yu, the subject of morally dubious experiments designed to improve the human race. You awaken aboard the Talos 1 in the year 2032 and must uncover the secrets hiding in the depths of the space station while being hunted by the mysterious alien force that has taken over. You'll have to rely on the tools you find on the station – along with your wits, weapons and mind-bending abilities – to combat the growing threat and, hopefully, survive. Get your first look at Prey in the cinematic reveal trailer."

Prey will arrive some time in 2017 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Stay tuned for more information as we get it!
