Yes but the book is meant to bridge all movies to the game
According to whom? I've never heard that to be the case, and the blurb doesn't say that.
Also, I might be wrong but I don't recall Predators being mentioned (possibly because it took place on another planet). By that reasoning, it removes that movie from current canon as well.
This official prequel novel leads into the new PlayStation®4 video game from IllFonic. PREDATOR: STALKING SHADOWS is the bridge between Predator 2 and the current day continuity.
Also they mention a huge blackout on 2010 with the Predator tech, could be referencing Predators, who knows

Well that is interesting, what is the source for this snippet? And who are "they" and where do they mention a blackout in 2010?

Ah! I think you might be referring to the Pred tech surge described in the May 24th 2010 OWLF Recording #18. The writing is kinda weird for those recordings, but Keyes is describing an incident that occurred shortly after Dutch's run-in with the female Predator in early March of 2008, where he got his face scars. It may come up again in a future DLC, I hope it will, but as-is it's just a weird and ambiguous reference. That is, of course, if this is indeed what you might be thinking of. But I could be wrong.

That's probably it, I wonder if it has something to do with Predators, we may know in the future, maybe we'll get a Royce update with audio logs too lmao

I've not played Hunting Grounds but a DLC with a Super Predator encounter would be cool.  Maybe add the hunting planet as a map.  Player team is captured and dropped off.  Be neat, also good way to the in some extra lore updates!

Halfway through the youtube vers and Voodoo is cracking me up detailing Ellison supposed assassination plan for Dutch, two Hillbilly's and a transient, man. I guess that's all they had in the mib's assassination budget.

Haha, I still feel guilty over some technical problems I was having so I'm glad I could create some laughs. But I know, right? Ellison can't put a sniper somewhere on a roof ready for Dutch to leave the bar? Instead he hires a homeless man? Maybe we should just be happy he was trying to give the homeless employment.   :laugh:

But keep in mind, the DLC's are still coming out, so who knows what new lore is still coming down the pipe. I personally really want to know about this Big Mama yaut that branded Dutch's face, I have a feeling we haven't heard the last of her.

That's nice. Thanks.

I just listened to the sample. Er... Hmm. That's an interesting Arnie impression. Sounds more like Udo Kier.

Lol. Yeah, James Patrick Cronin has been doing all the Predator Audiobooks lately, you can tell early on in Stalking Shadows that he's deliberately trying Not to do an Arnie impression, but that goal was a bit too herculean and his Dutch voice is kinda all over the map for most of the book. Later on towards the end he sorta settle's on Arnie-light and it feels a bit more comfortable.

Ironically enough, the Dutch tapes from the game are using the real Arnie, which is mostly awesome but kinda weirdly not Dutch-like sometimes. Like in the recording from March 3rd 2008 right after his entire squad is killed and he only survives because the big Female Yaut lets him live after scarring him up, he just kinda glides over the fact that all his buddies were just slaughtered in front of him. but eh. c'est la vie. Mr Schwarzenegger is incredibly awesome for even being a part of this.
