ZeniMax Owns Prey Rights
Filed under: ZENIMAX MEDIA, PREY

ZeniMax Media -- they own id Software and developer Bethesda Softworks -- has now acquired the rights to the Prey shooter franchise. ZeniMax hasn't made any official announcements yet, albeit superannutation got hold of a document, which shows Radar Group transferring ownership to ZeniMax in July.

As it happens, ZeniMax registered the Prey trademark for games, books, movies and television shows.

Well, I imagine this means we'll be getting an official announcement for the acquisition pretty soon, along with a no doubt imminent announcement of a sequel to Prey. Keep your shirt on, we'll post more info on this as soon as we have it.

what announcement ?
i thought everybody knew Prey 2 was in the works a long time ago.

problem is, development is about as efficient as growing a coconut tree.....it'll take a while.

Prey spanks butt! I don't remember they had a sequel in (definite) works. But that sure is good to hear.

If they make a sequel, I sure hope it will be bigger and not based on an alien ship again.

Sweet! I enjoyed the first one, even if it's just because it was trying to be a little different to your average shooter.

Bitch yes! Prey 2! The original was fantastic. It was a decade old but still managed to remain fresh and different from other games then. Though i don't like the books, shows and movies part. They are gonna milk it. Badly.

The first Prey's ending was an obvious setup for a sequel, and Scott Miller of Radar Group confirmed back after the first game was released that the sequel was already in development.

Some people really hated on Prey, but personally, I loved the game, and played it through like 3 times, iirc. Great level design. Good pacing. Varied (and thus interesting) gameplay.

I look forward to the sequel. As far as I know, Human Head Studios is still the primary developer, so that's a good thing.
  skribb: You're right. Now I remember!

Not to mention a kick ass Cherokee protagonist to boot with.
