HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Due to some technical issues, the Evolve Big Alpha for PS4 has been postponed.  Xbox One and PC players can sign up and participate in the alpha, however PS4 players will have to wait a little while longer.  The developer says in a post that following the recent firmware update (2.00) for PS4, they have been experiencing some difficulties.  Playstation and 2K are working together to find a solution.

After being announced in 2011, we have not heard much about Prey 2 since then; Recently Bethesda vice president Pete Hines has confirm that the game has been indeed cancelled.  Claiming that the title did not meet quality standards, Prey 2 had been rumored to have been cancelled before.  However, Hines did say that the company does believe that the franchise can still be of use, and that they just need to decide on what that will be.
