A lot of Prey fans believe that the mysterious alien text on Alien Noire is actually a countdown for Prey 2.
Well, the website got updated earlier this week to include Bethesda and Human Head Studios logos in addition to Prey 2 logo.
Furthermore, the source code of the page (which is not normally seen by visitors) was updated to include the text "Tommy needs your help with a stranded human who wants to go home." Coincidently, Tommy is the name of Prey’s Cherokee protagonist.
With developer and publisher logo and all, this looks like a legitimate PR stunt. But Bethesda made it clear that this is not the case. "I don't know what that is or who is doing it. It's not something we're doing," a Bethesda spokesperson asserted.
Bethesda’s statement is quite definitive, but one has to wonder: why didn’t Bethesda take legal action to remove its logo from the page?
