A particularly interesting teaser site by the name of "AlienNoire.com" has popped up and it's certainly counting down to something. What's it counting down to? Well, if the kids over at NeoGaf are to be trusted, Prey 2. Upon Alien Noire's initial launch, a gamer managed to grab a screenshot of the site's source code which listed the following keywords: Prey 2, FPS, Bethesda Softworks, Human Head Studios.
It was less than a year ago that rumors began to swirl about Prey 2's cancelation. Bethesda even removed the game's listing from their website and announced that the game has been indefinitely delayed as it currently did not meet their expectations of quality. Here we are a year later with a potential re-announcement of the game, almost seven years after Human Head Studio's launch of the original Prey (their only release in the past seven years). It's all rather surreal.
Keep in mind this is 100% rumor at this point. The Alien Noire website is registered to an Oklahoma address, not Bethesda's, and the source code keywords could be made up by either the site creator or the NeoGaf user who capture the screenshot. Time will tell, though it looks like this potential Prey 2 countdown has a ways to go before it hits zero... I think?
