With last month's successful launch (sales wise) of Aliens Vs Predator, will we be seeing more of that long delayed Aliens: Colonial Marines? It seems the answer to that question may be, "Yes." MCV chatted with Randy Pitchford of the game's developer Gearbox Software who said, "It's the thing I've been stealing from all my career. Now I'm really working on it, but we've been quiet about that so far."
It's hard to believe but Gearbox's involvement in an Aliens-based first person shooter was first revealed over three years ago. Publisher Sega seemed to want the game to come out last year but unexpectedly the company changed their minds and decided an Aliens Vs Predator game with developer Rebellion was worth doing instead. Since then Gearbox's FPS Borderlands has become a big hit so hopefully this means more dev time will be devoted to the new Aliens game.
