Here is an official statement from Bethesda Softworks regarding Prey 2, its delay, and the reason behind it.
From Bethesda Softworks
Development of Prey 2 has not been cancelled but the game will not be released in 2012 as planned. The delay is due to the fact that game development has not progressed satisfactorily this past year, and the game does not currently meet our quality standards. Prey 2 has shown great promise and we regret disappointing our fans. We have made a substantial investment in game development to deliver the experience fans want. We are determined only to release the AAA game that fans rightfully expect, and are unwilling to compromise our quality standards to meet a release schedule.
Nifty Skyrim caps they are giving away!
Bethesda Softworks is no stranger to taking care of and making an impression on their fans. For instance – during Gamescom, the company hired a blimp to cruise around about the convention with a Skyrim banner on its side. At E3, the company hired artists to hand-paint a huge Skyrim banner on the side of a building. At PAX Prime? Well, not only will they be showing off Prey 2 and Skyrim, but also will be offering complimentary Skyrim-themed foods at a Skyrim food truck!

With PAX Prime 2011 kicking off on Friday, we wanted to share details on what we’re planning.
At our booth (#1314), you won’t want to miss your chance to play RAGE, as well as presentations of Prey 2 at the top of every hour. On top of that, fans will be able to play Skyrim for the first time!
But wait, there’s more! At 3:30 pm on Saturday, Todd Howard will be giving a special presentation of the game in the Unicorn theater. Seating is expected to be limited, so you will definitely want to line up early. As a bonus, everyone that attends the demo will receive a ticket which can be redeemed at our booth for a Skyrim plush helmet — just like the one being modeled by our lovely 2008 PAX statue, Burnadette.
If you’re not able to get the helmet at the presentation, you can also visit our Skyrim food truck to grab one. Located at 9th & Pine (across from the Paramount Theater) from 11:30 to 3:00 pm Saturday, the truck will feature the following foods fit for a Nord:
