For better or worse: 7 games that changed developers mid-cycle

Prey 2


Developer Human Head announced in 2011 that they would be continuing their post-portal FPS and delivered a thoroughly impressive showing at E3 that was a mix of Blade Runner and Mirror’s Edge. Yet the game is now mired in contractual disputes apparently caused by publisher Bethesda’s unhappiness with the state of development. Human Head are now definitely working on another project with gossip pointing to Dishonored’s Arkane picking up the project. Although Bethesda PR boss Hines has stated that he won’t, “comment on all the rumour and speculation”. He did however say that, “We were clearly not happy with where Prey 2 was in terms of its development”.
