Despite looking most awesome when the game was first showed off, we haven’t seen anything from Sega and Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines for a while now. But, Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford assures us again, through CVG this time, that unlike the Aliens RPG which met its sad fate not too long ago, Colonial Marines is still very much in the works. It’s just been running in stealth mode.
“I know that there hasn’t been much talk about what we’re doing for awhile and that more details would be very juicy. Like so many people, I’ve been patient for years to finally be able to play this game and now that I’m actually involved in the creation of it I can tell you that it’s extremely challenging to continue to be patient as it develops,” Pitchford said. “I want to tell all! But I can’t. But I can say that we are working hard and that there are great things afoot and I know that when the time is right, Sega will be excited to share more details about the game.”
Pitchford goes on to basically invite the media to hassle both Gearbox and Sega, “I guess the only thing anyone can do is just keep pressuring Gearbox and Sega to spill more beans. Maybe one of us will eventually crack.”
The game is currently expected to arrive some time next year.
