Pitchford “really excited” for Colonial Marines

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford still isn’t going into detail about Aliens: Colonial Marines, the squad-based shooter the studio is developing, but he does say he’s “really excited” for it.

“We have an Aliens game with Sega and 20th Century Fox which we’re really excited about,” he told MCV recently.” 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.”

Colonial Marines took a step back from the public eye last year to avoid mixed marketing messages as Rebellion’s Aliens vs. Predator approached release. But now that it’s out — and apparently doing quite well — Gearbox should be free to show what ‘working their butts off‘ has resulted in. And soon, we hope.
