A new countdown site titled “Alien Noire” has appeared online, and according to some NeoGAF users it heralds the return of the long-dormant sci-fi open world FPS – Prey 2.

The post over at NeoGAF presents a screenshots of the site’s source code which contained the tags: Prey, Prey2, Prey 2, FPS, Bethesda Softworks, Human Head Studios, Alien Noire (they are not there anymore). What is still in the source code in a little comment the reads “Tommy needs your help.” Those who played the original Prey will immediately recognize the name. Tommy was the protagonist of the first game, and he’s rumored to appear in the sequel as well.

The countdown ends March 1 (trust me, I read alien), so be sure to be back for the full story.
