Aliens: Colonial Marines Pushed Back
Well, there are plenty of other games to play in the meantime.
Sega has revealed that Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed. It was originally slated to arrive this spring, but now it won't arrive until the fall.
The statement said the project needs to follow the inspiration and creativity of the developers, rather than a timetable blueprint.
"Aliens: Colonial Marines is a process of creativity and invention and those don't necessarily follow the structure of an assembly line. While setting clear goals, deadlines and predictions is helpful, they are often subjective. We don't want to sacrifice the creative process just for the sake of following a blueprint. We prefer to have the creative discovery shape that blueprint because our goal is to make a great game, and we are prioritizing this goal over the previously targeted date."
If you're wondering, the game picks up after the events of the classic 1986 sci-fi thriller. Players will join up with a bunch of space soldiers aboard the USS Sulaco (yeah, the ship in the movie) after it was abandoned, and then proceed to planet LV-426 and its primary settlement, Hadley's Hope. This is a first-person shooter that should be faithful to the film(s) in question and we say if Sega needs more time, fine.
Mediocre titles are always disappointing. Just get it right.
