Whether you enjoy the game or not, you can't deny that Aliens: Colonial Marines is one ugly game. Sorry, but it's true. We even saw video evidence comparing the final version to last year's press demo. For a while, neither SEGA nor Gearbox had anything to say on the matter, but Gearbox president Randy Pitchford has broken the silence. Don't expect a solid explanation though.
Speaking to his Twitter followers, Pitchford noted that there's "a lot to discuss" over Aliens and the clusterf**k that ensued following its release. Too much for Twitter, even. We may get a response soon, is what Pitchford suggested, but not right now.
In response to a user asking about the game's state after such a lengthy development period, Pitchford tweeted,"Lots to learn and discuss here... Beyond the scope of twitter."
Someone followed up with another question asking "where and when," to which he replied, "We're looking at that. Please forgive me for being very careful at the moment. Thank you for understanding."
Despite being in development for as long as it was and suffering two delays, Aliens: Colonial Marines released to poor critical reception. Wait, that's an understatement; more accurate to say the game was torn to shreds by critics and gamers alike. Not that it's without its fans.
SEGA has yet to confirm whether the Wii U version is still going to be released, though the publisher did deny rumors of its cancellation.
