New Prey 2 documents leak out, emphasise System Shock 2 influences

Aiming for a 2016 release on current-gen consoles?

Some new documents claiming ro be development materials for Prey 2 have appeared on the internet.

They seem to reinforce some of the rumours that we've already heard on the game which is now understood to be in development at Arkane Austin. The documents state that Prey 2 is codenamed “Project Danielle” and is indeed aiming to be a spiritual successor System Shock 2.

What is strange is that they seem to indicate that the game is aiming for a 2016 release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC with no mention of next-gen platforms at all. New Prey 2 documents leak out, emphasise System Shock 2 influences

Current-gen only releases like Grid: Autosport and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel might make sense this year but, in two years time many gamers will have moved on to the PS4 and Xbox One, especially given the upcoming next-gen releases like Sunset Overdrive and Driveclub.

There are two documents available to view. They're both Powerpoint presentations and they're up on Scribd here and here. As they're both Powerpoint-style presentations they could easily be a hoax especially given their bizarre combination of release platforms and date.
