quoteSource: ign.comAliens: Colonial Marines lives on, as Gearbox's Randy Pitchford said 'there's no need to worry' about the much delayed squad shooter based on the much loved sci-fi franchise.
So long has it been since firm news on Aliens: Colonial Marines that it seemed the game had gone the way of Duke Nukem Forever – a title which Gearbox spectacularly revived at this weekend's PAX. Since Aliens: Colonial Marines was first announced in at the tail-end of 2006 there's been little revealed beyond a handful of screenshots, and its initial launch window of early 2009 sailed by without a peep from either Gearbox or publisher SEGA.
"We have never wavered in our commitment to that game," Pitchford told vg247 in an interview at this weekend's PAX, "Because Gearbox is a multi-team studio and we have multi-team projects, when one game gets its day in the sun I know people tend to worry about the other games. But there's no need to worry at all."
SEGA remained tight-lipped on the game when we enquired on its status late last week, though we'll be probing them for further comment today.
