Developer Gearbox is finishing up work on action-horror game Aliens: Colonial Marines, and with that comes a solid release date: February 12, 2013. Studio CEO Randy Pitchford says while it may seem like you've been waiting forever for it, it's only because they revealed it too early; development time has actually been on par with their previous titles.
We've also got a new trailer for you, which offers yet more delicious horror.

Pitchford notes the game has stayed true to their vision of a true installment in the Aliens franchise this whole time -- something of a rarity in the industry, at least these days. This is in part because publisher Sega was cool with them "[prioritizing] the goals [Gearbox] had for the game over any particular launch window" -- kudos.
