Aliens: Colonial Marines Slips AGAIN

Outstanding. Now all we need is a deck of cards.

In December 2006 Gearbox and Sega announced that they were working on a brand new Aliens game, having picked up the license earlier in the year.

The game was officially announced in February 2008 and has continually been delayed until a firm release date of spring 2012 was announced.

The official Colonial Marines web site now lists the game as autumn 2012 which, by my count, means Gearbox has been tinkering with the game for nigh on eight years. They could probably have built a fully operational replica of Nostromo in that time.

  1. Oh oh, the next Duke Nukem.

    • That is my concern too – Hasn’t changed hands as many times though, which is in it’s favour.

      Still…

  2. I give up waiting for this!

  3. Fuuuuuu…….
    (><)
    Unhappy

  4. Thats my bad guys sorry. Did a bit of reading round today about this game for the first time in ages. One hour later this article emerges on TSA. Me thinks I jinxed it :(

    • You may want to retreat to a safe place for a few months as the TSA crowd is known to murder people for petty reasons. ;)

      • Yeah I kill people for crumpling up paper, jinxing a delay for my personal most anticipated game of 2012 deserves 20 deaths!
        wow this sounds strange, just kidding…of course ;)

      • Also btw it is listed as Spring 2012 on the official website so confused

  5. It better be epic. Thats all im saying.

  6. ‘In December [b]2006[/b] Gearbox and Sega announced that they were working on a brand new Aliens game, having picked up the license earlier in the year.’

    Then…

    ‘The official Colonial Marines web site now lists the game as autumn [b]2012[/b] which, by my count, means Gearbox has been tinkering with the game for nigh on [b]eight years[/b].’

    In 2006 they picked it up, and it is set to release this year – 2012 – thats only 6 years, not 8…

    =D

    • Doh, bold tags don’t work =|

      • Some elite members know how to do them, but alas for us mere mortals, it is plain text only i am afraid!

      • TREMBLE BEFORE THE ELITES! :-P

      • Does this BOLD attempt work?

      • Yay I found out how to do it…just looked at the source code for the comment above! Elites for the win! =P

  7. For fucks sake!!!, been waiting for this for AGES. Firstly they relaes the boat load of shite that was DNF then they continually fuck us over with the game Aliens fans have been waiting for years! YEARS!!!

    • Yeah but that said, would you rather have a shoddy mess released on schedule or a decent coherent game released later down the line?

      I have to be honest & say I would want the latter every time (although the inner child in me will throw a tantrum of course).

      • I do agree but they should be honest and not keep announcing dates that continually slip. Gamers deserve better than that

      • I’m afraid this could end up as a decently shoddy mess released later down the line. Continous delays are never good, my hopes are still high for FFv13 though…

  8. aaargggh!!!

  9. So it’s gonna go up against Halo 4 and the next cod is it??, doubt it somehow so thats likely another delay coming. Do us a favour Sega and give the license to a developer that doesn’t talk complete shite

  10. dont worry about it, gearbox mostly release alright, mostly.
