New Aliens game enters development

Written by David Stellmack

Creative Assembly taking the reigns
Creative Assembly, the developer best known for the Total War franchise, is working on a new game based on the Alien franchise. Other than that the new title is being developed for Sega, we don’t know much more about it yet.

As for Creative Assembly, they will be opening a new 10,000 square foot studio as part of the development of the project. Currently, they have about 160 employees and they expect to grow that number to about 200 once everything is in place.

The Alien franchise has not had a lot of luck getting titles to release. After Sega acquired the rights, they commissioned an Alien RPG title to be developed by Obsidian, which was canned way back in 2009. In the meantime, Gearbox is said to still be working on Aliens: Colonial Marines which is an FPS title that has been in development for a long time; but reports indicate that the title is still inching closer to release.

Expect Sega to make a more in-depth announcement of what the Aliens title is, along with a projected release date during E3.

The recent game had a very good single player the multi was pretty average compared to previous releases. Also it has been 5 years since the last 'serious' release, and that wasn't too serious as it was console only - that was a predetors game, somthing about a concrete jungle. the last AVP game would have been about 7 or so years back, hardly flogged to death.

Let us all just assume you where refering to the COD games

Does this means no more AvP? :-)

They need to do an Alien RTS game with Colonial Marines and, of course, the Aliens. I realize that it'd be pretty much Terran vs. Zerg, but it could still be pretty cool. Especially if it was actually modern, not some rehash of a 12 year old title.
