If you weren't already aware, there were a total of three video games based on the Alien/s films in development. But now there's only two.
This week, Obsidian Entertainment (makers of Neverwinter Nights and the upcoming awesome-looking Alpha Protocol) released an official statement ringing the deathknell for their Aliens role-playing game. And then publisher Sega (makers of uh, Sonic) echoed their sentiments. A few days later they released some concept art to show the world what exactly the game would have looked like. On the alien side of things anyway. I have to admit, as a huge fan of the Alien franchise, I can't really decide whether these are fascinating or dumb. Regardless, at least it ain't the newborn alien from Alien: Resurrection.
At least it's not the newborn from Alien: Resurrection. At least it's not the newborn from Alien: Resurrection. At least it's not the newborn from Alien: Resurrection.
As far as the other games are concerned, there's a new Alien Vs Predator game in the works. And of course, the long overdue Aliens: Colonial Marines is still occasionally popping up to say it still exists. No word yet on the state or release date of either of these games. But seeing as Colonial Marines is shaping up to be Rainbow Six Vegas but with Aliens - I AM SOLD.
