Prey director says he didn’t want to call it that, but Bethesda insisted it should be

Despite sharing a name, the 2017 bears little resemblance to its namesake. According to Prey director Raphaël Colantonio, Arkane Studios was forced by Bethesda to use the name, even though him not wanting to. If you haven’t heard of Prey, first released in 2017, that’s not particularly surprising, as it didn’t do very well (though it is one of Arkane’s best games). There was also a game released in 2006 also called Prey, made by Human Head Studios, which Bethesda owns the IP rights to.

Now that Deathloop is delayed again, go play Prey: Mooncrash

Since Deathloop was first announced, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Prey: Mooncrash, the exceptional expansion to Arkane’s Prey. It follows a similar sort of formula to what the studio have told us about Deathloop, with roguelite elements and permadeath that essentially mean you’ll need to start all over again after each run.
