If you haven’t played it, it was a fantastic game. critics and gamers who played the game loved it. They started working on a Prey 2 and then cancelled it. So now they have announced a reimaging of a 10 year old game..um..ok. Could be good. Just wonder what happened to originality? Maybe I am just sore because they didn’t announce a new elderscrolls. Anyway here is the official announcement.
