The recent closure of Arkane Austin has left many fans devastated, especially those eagerly awaiting a sequel to the 2017 FPS, Prey. With the studio behind beloved games like the Dishonored series and Deathloop now shutting its doors, the hopes for a Prey 2 have been dashed.

One fan account, ‘Has Prey 2 Been Announced Yet?’ had been counting down the days for a potential sequel, but after the news of Arkane Austin’s closure, they broke a 2,556-long streak of hopeful tweets with a simple, yet utterly tragic, “no.” This marks the end of an era for fans who have been eagerly anticipating the next installment in the Prey series.

2017’s Prey was a reboot of the cult classic 2006 FPS, but despite its popularity among players and critics, it was considered a commercial flop. This, coupled with the cancellation of a planned sequel back in 2014, may have been a significant factor in Microsoft’s decision not to greenlight a follow-up. It’s a disappointing outcome for fans who had hoped to see more of the world and story introduced in Prey.

With Microsoft’s recent focus on celebrating successful titles like Hi-Fi Rush and Redfall, it’s clear that they are committed to supporting games with strong potential. Unfortunately, it seems that Prey 2 did not fit within their vision for the future of the franchise. While this news may be disheartening for fans, it also serves as a reminder of the challenges faced by developers and studios in the ever-changing landscape of the gaming industry.

The closure of Arkane Austin and the subsequent end of any hopes for a Prey 2 sequel is a somber reminder of the realities of game development. While fans may mourn the loss of a beloved studio and franchise, it’s important to remember the dedication and hard work that went into creating the games we love. As we say goodbye to Arkane Austin, we can only hope that the talented individuals behind the studio will find success in their future endeavors.
