You know nuked from the orbit. Cause it was the only way to be sure.

Ripley: These people are here to protect you. They're soldiers.

Newt: It won't make any difference.

"They are coming outta the walls."

 

I honestly thought it was cancelled. If the game is anything like AvP 1 and 2 (the marine bits anyway) it would be a hell of a good game. Interesting to see how they would maintain interest throughout the game. You can fight the aliens only so long without it starting to loose the tension.

Gearbox denies Aliens has been canned

24 November 2008

 

Gearbox Software has denied that Aliens: Colonial Marines has been cancelled following reports of trouble at the developer on Friday.

 

Shacknews and Kotaku, citing multiple sources, both originally reported that the SEGA-published shooter had been ditched late in development and that 15-26 employees had been let go.

 

However, Gearbox president Randy Pitchford said "Aliens isn't canned" in a comment post on Shacknews, and told both sites that he couldn't wait for "the right moment we can more fully unveil our efforts there".

 

Pitchford didn't address the issue of layoffs directly, but he acknowledged that the company had been "adjusting our internal strategy to move from being about Opportunity, Ambition and Growth to a strategy that is oriented towards Quality, Focus and Performance" in a statement.

 

He said there had been "a number of recent tactical decisions" that were "natural manoeuvring that all studios should only consider after they finish a big effort", and that "we are, in fact, currently hiring".

 

Gearbox recently shipped Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway, which struggled to emulate the critical success of its predecessors Road to Hill 30 and Earned in Blood. The developer is also working on the promising openworld ARPG Borderlands for 2K and other unannounced projects.

 

 

 

Not bad for a human

Looking forward to this especially the split screen(one having the motion detector and the other guy watching your back).But more interested in the feature where they said that you would be able to weld doors shut.

+1. and another +1.

How is that coming along then? :lol:

 

Screens look nice though. Very much like Aliens (the movie).

Gotta say one thing, Gearbox are moving up in the world.

 

Aliens, Borderlands 2 (its inevitable), Duke and 1 unknown game in development. Not a bad profile for a studio that started off by making Half life 1 spinoffs and a port of Halo 1.
