    That's sort of damning with faint praise isn't it?

    "Their publishers are dicks and their games are boring but hey at least they're nice people!"
    You aren't understanding, I mean, the company itself, its buisness practices, are good. and I didn't say anything about the games being boring, stop putting words in my mouth.

    Any chance they could switch publishers?
    That's unlikely, as Bethesda/Zenimax own the Prey name and Franchise, not Human Head. HH are basically contract Developers in this situation, kind of like how Obsidian were under contract to make Fallout: New Vegas for Zenimax.

    Anyways, this is pretty crappy. If nothing else the concept of Blade Runner-esk bounty hunter with crazy aliens was pretty cool. The gameplay could use some work, but that footage wasn't recent.

    Why do people cancel games when they're closer to finished than unfinished? Hell, in most of these cases, it seems like they'd be better off finishing it anyway.

    It's like manufacturing a set of new cars, but before you can bolt on the last wheel on the last car, you cancel the line of cars and scrap them all.

    I hope to fuck that this is just a rumor and is proven false like the supposed Doom 4 cancellation.

    What?

    I dont get this like most other people, why would you miss out on what clearly looks like a good busnuiess opprotunity like this? this thing would sell out in under a few hours at Markets if they actually released the damned thing.

    The joke's on you Bethseda.

    Actual gameplay, to be honest it doesn't really look that good/fun imo.

    I'm reminded of bullet storm for some reason. Bullet storm wasn't very good imo

    Edited:

    though the trailer is one of the coolest things ive seen in a while

    This makes me sad now. And it makes me not like Bethesda which is a publisher that generally doesn't give me any qualms.

    I think it's safe to say that Bethesda is in bed with EA and Activision by their "fuck players, mo money" decision. These are dark days when once good companies become corrupted with stupidity and ignorance.

    I'd hate to be a contract developer under Bethesda.

    So? Sure you get paid but the work is not done if they pull the plug.
    It's all unfinished, all the efford the gamedesigners, artist, programmers... etc put in there
    cannot be seen by an audience.

    It must be the worst feeling ever. Working on something for years and then they cancel it.

    I think it's because marketing is more expensive than development.

    Why the fuck would you cancel this?

    It would sell like there was no tomorrow.
    In space, everyone speaks english.

    It would seriously increase immersion, if for even once, they didn't have to make every character speak english when their language is most likely something entirely different, be it moonspeak, russian or chinese.

    Also in every scifi game, humanity is represented entirely by americans with maybe a couple of stereotypical brits or russians thrown in.

    I seem to recall during one of the videos they released they explained that the bounty hunter you'd play as picked up a translator.

    I would have liked to seen more just because of the concept.

    World needs more sci-fi bounty hunting games and less brown manshooters.

    All that proves is that they pulled their talks from GDC. And that Tweet was from February and is over a month old at this point.
