AND 3D REALMS ANNOUNCE PREY



 




Innovative First Person Shooter in Development at Human Head Studios


 


New York,
NY – April 26, 2005

– 2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.
(NASDAQ:  TTWO), and 3D Realms today announced
Prey
, a
revolutionary first person shooter for PC and a next-generation console system
in development at Human Head Studios, under the direct supervision of 3D
Realms.


 


“The initial concept for
Prey
had
been incubating for a while, waiting for the right opportunity to come along,”
said George Broussard, President of 3D Realms. "We jumped at the chance to
create this game with a talented developer like Human Head Studios and
next-generation technology like the Doom 3 engine."


 


Scott Miller, CEO of 3D
Realms, added, "Prey
is special for many reasons, including several new and original gameplay
features and a tightly integrated story that packs an emotional punch, unlike
other first person shooters."


 


“Our collaboration with 3D
Realms has been enormously rewarding,” added Timothy Gerritsen, CEO of Human
Head Studios. “With their help,
Prey
is
sure to breathe new life into the first person shooter genre with a compelling
story, innovative gameplay mechanics and dazzling imagery, which is powered by
our significantly enhanced version of id Software’s original Doom 3 engine.”


 



Prey

will be exclusively showcased at this year’s E3 Expo by ATI in a movie
theater-style exhibition. For the world exclusive first details on the game,
look for PC Gamer’s June issue featuring
Prey
as its
cover story, arriving on newsstands in early May.  Prey
is currently scheduled for a 2006 release.
