Prototype 2 kills its maker in 2012

The latest unveiling at the Spike VGAs is a sequel to 2009's Prototype, unsurprisingly titled Prototype 2. This time, however, the protagonist isn't Alex Mercer -- instead, he's the target of one Sgt. James Hellen, who seems to have undergone infection himself in an attempt to take out Mercer. The game will launch in 2012.

Hit the jump for the teaser trailer.
