The lights are on
The website aliennoire.com was uncovered by NeoGAF, and it looks like it may be associated with the not-cancelled, but fate undetermined Prey 2.
Along with this posting on NeoGAF pointing to the site, user EatChildren also posted a screenshot of the page's source code that featured the words Prey 2, Bethesda Softworks, and Hothead Studios. The source code has either been changed since the screenshot was taken, or the screenshot featured on NeoGAF has been fabricated, because it no longer features any of these references. One piece of evidence that is present on the page's source code, however, is the phrase, "Tommy needs your help." Tommy was the name of the protagonist from the original Prey, and was confirmed to be part of Prey 2.
Looking at the site's whois.com registration details, reveals that the site was registered in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, which is close to the Cherokee Tribal Administration. Tommy is of Cherokee descent, and his family history is a major component of the original Prey.
The countdown will end on Friday, March 1, so presumably we will find out then if this is something legitimate, or something fan created on that date.
