Activision confirmed today that PROTOTYPE 2, the sequel to Radical Entertainment's original best-selling game of 2009 — PROTOTYPE — is currently in development for 2012. PROTOTYPE 2's first official trailer was revealed as a world premiere during this past weekend's Spike TV Video Game Awards 2010 show, where fans of the shape-shifting open-world action franchise got their first glimpse into Sgt. James Heller, and why he is going to destroy PROTOTYPE's original anti-hero,Alex Mercer. For those that missed it, head over to www.facebook.com/prototype to check out the trailer and be sure to become a fan. Gamers should also be on the lookout for the exclusive, in-depth first look preview of PROTOTYPE 2 in EGM magazine's April 2011 issue.
"When PROTOTYPE surpassed 2MM units we knew gamers would want a sequel to find out what happens next with Alex Mercer," said Ken Rosman, Studio Head, Radical Entertainment. "The team here at Radical is sincerely grateful to the fans and we are laser focused on delivering an even bigger and better experience with PROTOTYPE 2!"
PROTOTYPE 2 is currently in development for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the Games for Windows . The game is currently rated "RP" (Rating Pending) by the ESRB, with an expected "M" (Mature — Content that may be suitable for persons 17 and older)."
if activision give this a chance, pariah will gonna be a main villain in prototype 3 just like alex mercer but this time, he will destroy whole world by unleashing his power turning all people into weapon of mass destruction...
If they wanted a new character for this game, why not use Pariah? I mean, he is implied to be a much more powerful virus than Alex, so why didn't they not use him instead of a new guy? Then Alex didn't have to become as nihilistic as he came to be in 2.
Initially, I thought that they might want to preserve Pariah for Prototype 3, at that point which they thought they will develop, but as Activision didn't hit sales cap, the whole thing got put on unplanned halt.
I know I'm a little late here, but I actually had an idea for Prototype 3 that could've possibly saved the Prototype franchise: a team up between Alex and James. Now, before everyone goes jumping on my ass saying that it would be a terrible idea, let me explain: Let's say a year after the incidents that took place in Prototype 2, Alex Mercer finds a way to escape from James Heller's body, and says he doesn't remember anything. Now let's say THIS version of Alex has no recollection of what happened before he died, meaning that he's still a good guy. He makes amends with Heller and Dana Mercer, but after that, reports are coming from all over the U.S where Pariah (the game's main villain and Elizabeth Greene's child) has taken over the city of Las Vegas, Nevada, and now Alex and James have to team up to stop him. In other words, yes, you could play as both Alex AND James, with co-op multiplayer gameplay, play by yourself or with a friend. Tell me what you all think about my idea.
Nice idea but remember that Alex is still alive
He is the virus . All of the other evolved like Heller and Galloway are just infected with the virus and those monsters you fought are also just infected with the virus but Alex is no longer a person ... He is the virus and when Heller consumed Mercer Heller didn't become the virus ... He just become a container for one of Mercer's bodies
You do realise that Alex is dead? Alex is a virus just like any other virus heller has fought and when he absorbed them what happened? Nothing. He got their memories and powers and that's it now if you go to the conclusion "BUT ALEX IS ORIGINAL VIRUS" it really doesn't matter... hell half the things heller fought were nothing but the virus and he absorbed them and Alex was very weak in Protoype 2 because he lost so much bio mass by releasing it through out the prototype world.
They fucked this game up.
Prototype 2 fuck ups:
-No enemy variation or spawns such as a "Super soldier or 2 of them in a military base" or "goliath,big fatties in the red zone"
-Limited use of powers/perks. In P1 you could call down tactical strikes and even tell the military the other guy is "infected" which was so funny
-Horrible combat combinations and overpoweredness. I like the reflective bullets but dude wow. It is insanely OP
+Joseph Michael Alex din't died remember in prototype 1 Alex consumed a raven and he was back alivein murder your maker Heller cut Mercer's handsso Heller din't Consume Alex wholethat arms still can just consume some one and go back(maybe)
Please, someone tell me why the hell Spooderman keeps getting shitty Super hero games almost every two years, when prototype was F*cking awesome and did EVERYTHING right in both games, keeping the Sequel with improved Graphics, and IMPROVED Gameplay (a lot more then just those two) Now Prototype doesn't seem to be getting a Third. Which is really Sad. Prototype and Infamous are like the only two Superpower games, now we're stuck with infamous and the new one really isn't THAT good. Please, Activision! Bring back my Prototype!
About Alex...the producers said Mercer isnt really a hero, he's more like a evil leader after the first game, they wanted to create a hero but Mercer is not the one, plus he's at his limit, he cant enhance his powers anymore, so they decided to make a real hero which is Heller, bigger blade, stronger power, a better person overall...but yeah I'm not really into the second one...first one is still better!
There is a petition, if anyone is interested, that is asking for 1000 signatures to try convincing Activision to make another Prototype game. Google creation of prototype 3. I know I'd like the chance for the series to be revived. Maybe they'd even actually try to make a good story in the process instead of ripping off God of War.
We want Protoype 3 with many diferent skills like the first game. Also i want a fucking huge boss where i can get into his fucking mouth and and release tentacles from inside! And all this in one fucking piece, not divided into micro transactions with the gay argument that i can finish the game with one-two skills only or by cutting the dick of the huge boss only!!!
+T .Ellerbrock after prototype 1 Alex traveled 1 year trough the world
He killed a warlord in africa and people celebrated
After all that time he realised that the humans are evil and selfish
Then he realised that he made a mistake to stop the virus in the first game
He wanted to make a "better" world with the virus
Like he said in the second game that there wouldn't be anymore disseases and no more suffering
Prototype 2 just killed the franchise.. the window of attacks was greatly reduced and limited, when they tried to make it bigger by allowin us to use two powers at the same time, there was just not buttons enough to each power individually after that, and they overpowered Heller, he became litterally imune to bullets and could kill tanks and helicopters with the press of a button. they made my favorite characer a cliche villain with a horrible evil laugh.. the challenging difficulty of the first Prototype is gone, they messed up an opportunity to make an extraordinary and series
+feathero3 i'm sorry to say dear, but the prototype series are dead, Activision closed Radical Entretainment due staff reduction by the commercial failiure of Prototype 2, when i said that this game killed the franchise, i meant it
+Pinkie Pie I thought I was the only one who likes both MLP:FiM and Prototype! Also I completely agree with everything you say. But I feel they maybe, just maybe, could save the franchise with either a cool twist and/or combining the best parts of Prototype 1 and 2 into a super part 3.
To future people who will purchase this game.. DON'T.
The game lacks the fun game play of the original Prototype. I like how they set up the different zones but it's not worth it. You can't do much after completing the story like in original. Cannot get inside military bases, no Goliaths in the red zone, no super soldiers,no artillery strikes or blaming people they are the virus.... I expected this to happen in free roaming at least not gore it up .... and too easy for players....
