Radical Entertainment is the latest developer to fall foul to Activision’s high expectations. The developer – which recently released the middling Prototype 2 – has been dropped to a support role after a significant reduction in staff. Activision explained that it had explored “various options for the studio, including a...
RADNET is not some alternative version of the Internet that includes pleasant people
Instead it's the name of Prototype 2's limited edition first run, which includes a bunch of extra content for early adopters. Pre-order the title and you'll scoop up exclusive access to RADNET, which in turn rewards you with 55 pieces of additional content. If it...
Activision knows you keep forgetting about the release of Prototype 2, so it's announced a partnership with comic book label, Dark Horse, to keep the title at the forefront of your mind
The tag-team will see a slew of Prototype themed comics published bi-weekly on Dark Horse's digital store. The first issue — due out on February 15th — will...
It's hard to believe that a group of executives at Prototype 2 developer, Radical Entertainment, signed off on the game's exclusive GameStop pre-order bonus
Entitled the embarrassingly lame "Butt Kicker", the power upgrade is actually a modified version of the game's explosive human javelin Bio-Bomb ability — allowing you to, ahem, kick...
One thing's clear about Activision and Radical Entertainment's upcoming open-world superhero adventure -- it loves slow-motion

Activision's kicked off Comic-Con with a slew of North American release date announcements
Prototype 2 was the first to get a date, with the distant April 24th, 2012 being the target. Next up was Silicon Knights' X-Men Destiny, a game that, admittedly, we've seen very little of. That game's scored a September 27th release date. Finally, Activision...
Prototype's the very definition of an "impulse buy" sorta game
The title got decent reviews at launch and has maintained a limited but vocal fan-base. It's been on our "to-do" list for quite some time actually. So it's with some anticipation that we've got wind of Activision's plans to bring the open-world superhero title to the...
Perhaps one of the worst kept secrets of the VGAs this year, Activision's announced Prototype 2 for release in 2012
The game introduces a new protagonist, Sgt. James Heller, who's been tasked with destroying the previous game's antihero, Alex Mercer. That's a nice little twist. Still, Activision's slapped a 2012 release date on this. It's hard to...
This is the intro to the upcoming Prototype, an ostentatious open-world affair where you practically have all the powers of a small army
