Rumor: Prey 2 may be in development at Arkane Austin

 It looks like Prey 2 may be in development at Arkane Studios , which is working in partnership with Human Head Studios . Arkane Austin is allegedly working on a new project.

This could be a sequel to 2017 Prey featuring the developers of the original Prey. In a recent interview with Spanish site Vandal, Harvey Smith, who is the designer of the Dishonored and Deus Ex series, confirmed that Texas-based Arkane Austin is making a new game.

On the other hand, Arkane Lyon is working on Deathloop. Harvey Smith has confirmed that he is committed to a completely new project that is being developed in a Texas studio, while Arkane's French arm is developing Deathloop due in May.

To quote Smith's statement:

“Raf stayed in Austin and worked at Prey with Ricardo Bar, Susan Cat and the people I work with now. At the end of Dishonored 2 development, I returned to Austin. I'm not on the Deathloop development team, I'm on a different project, working with the guys who made Dishonored and Prey. "

As you may already know, Arkane Austin studio worked on the original Prey reboot. Roundhouse worked on the original Prey game and the sequel Prey 2, which was canceled.

Additionally, when asked if he would like to work on Deathloop as well, Smith replied:

“I think it would be very interesting. I played a fairly early version of the game, and now I'm looking forward to playing the more advanced version and giving you some feedback, but the spirit of these guys, their dedication to the gameplay, visual style and script ... I think it'll be interesting to see. " 

Human Head Studios, Prey's original team, was shut down in 2019, but Bethesda offered all of its members a job, effectively founding Roundhouse Studios.
