    I guess receiving big bucks from Epic was a wise decision for them. I can't help but imagine the decision was from ESDF, the investor on this game, seeing the state of the game.

    Being forcefully reborn as another gnarl on massive parasite known as Bethedsa is a fate worse than death.

    Only being a zombie mass producing CoD garbage every year is worse.

    This looks like it was produced without a visual / art director. Everything is bland, generic and desaturated to the maximum.

    So, after Bethesda gets their Prey 2 scrapped (which looked pretty good), they make Rune 2 timed exclusive on Epic and then get sold to Bethesda anyway as a trophy of some kind, am I getting this right?
    Kids, don't become game devs. Become electricians, plumbers, car mechanics, taxi drivers, anything but game devs. It's not worth it.

    It looks more and more like that their investor wanted to withdraw, and saw Epic as the way out.

    Sounds like these people will be right at home at Bethesda to be honest.

    WTF, just noticed this. This is hilarious.

    Epic paid for this? I'm starting to think maybe they really did get ripped off with The Outer Worlds.

    Bethesda being flaky with funds during Prey 2 development (trying to starve them so they'll be more accepting of an acquisition) ended up crippling the studio and is partly why they're now doing desperate shit like releasing a goddamned survival crafting game in 2019.

    Here's a good video on it:

    Can't have been very high expectations if the game already exceeds 'em just from being on the EGS. Then again it's only sensible considering it's a fucking open world crafting survival game.
