The teasers for the next DLC for the space horror title Prey continue and Arkane Studios definitely isn't pulling any punches when it comes to making the hunt for clues fun.
The latest teaser, seen below, comes courtesy of the official Prey Twitter account. Within the latest update hides a secret message. Immediately when looking at the Tweet itself, some of the letters are capitalized, while others remain lower case. With the most basic puzzles, that usually means the capped letters join together to make the hidden statement. Erm ... we're going to go out on a limb and say that's not the case here given that it spells out: GMRINGNOOGMOOADR.

So what else could it be? The most obvious answer to us is that it is a scrambled message meant to say "Good Morning, Morgan," which is the protagonist's name: Morgan Yu. We weren't the only ones to spot that either. It's pretty straight forward, but the reactions to the teaser were also immediate:
The tribute to LookingGlass studios in your titles is through the roof! I LOVE YOU @ArkaneStudios— SuperG (@FirebalForward) March 14, 2018
If you rearrange the letters it comes out to make "GOOD MORNING MORGAN"— Inverted T-Rex (@InvertedTREX) March 14, 2018
N-E-W-D-L-C, that spells moon.— Derek Strickland (@DeekeTweak) March 13, 2018
There were a few other interpretations of the random letters, but one thing is clear: people are stoked! The game originally came out in May of last year and it was instantly met with a positive reception.
This isn't the first teaser to drop about the upcoming DLC either. We reported earlier this month a different GIF accompanied by the quote, "Do we really know what's out there?"
Bethesda has already confirmed that the publisher will be holding another press conference this year at E3, so it seems likely that should anything be announced, more of it will be seen through the biggest conference of the year be that an official reveal, gameplay, or something else.
