So... anyone expecting the Pred to survive in the end?

Depends whether the main pred is a young Greyback or not, I guess.

They never do, so I don't see why this would be different.

If it is Greyback...it'd be a nice change of pace.

Would be interesting to see.

The Predator surviving doesn't even need to mean the protagonist dies or loses. If Harrigan hadn't chased City Hunter he could've got in the ship and gone home (I say "could" because he's killed by his peers in earlier script drafts).

Which is something I'd still be interested to see on screen - killed by their leaders specifically.

I've noticed that the "Prey 2022 is ripping off this old fan film" meme is being shared around a lot recently.
(And when the film comes out, it'll get shared even more). 

It'll be useful to make an article to point out that "Predators hunting native Americans" is an old idea in the franchise and that the fan film didn't come up with it from thin air.

It's first brought up in the novelization of the original, no?

Never seen a fan film that goes historical with it except the crusader one though, surely that's not what they mean?

no. they mean the "Warrior: Predator" fan film.

A quick google does show a similar premise. Can't say I give a shit though tbh.

Are there any rumors hinting at this Predator being Greyback? Or is just speculation based on the time period?

I personally don't think any director or writer is aware of the lore to make that connection. But I'm a pessimist, so.

I think there was a rumour that the FX team bought several replicas of the pistol from the end of P2

Nope. Having the Predator survive for the first time against the first live-action female lead in the franchise wouldn't send a great message.

If Greyback's in the film he'll be hunting people off to the side with the rest of his group and only show up briefly, a la the Lost Tribe at the end of P2. So he might well be there, and we might get our flintlock nod (perhaps we might get a scene of multiple Predators hunting a group of people, then the main one singles out Naru for the remainder of the film), but there's no way he's going to be the main antagonist.

I believe it's already been pointed out by Mr H and others that Prey had been in development years before that fan film.

The person who took the "Skulls" set pics said one of the crew members revealed the film involves the Flintlock.
