Today, SEGA finally confirms that Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development for Wii U. Sometimes, it's best just to cut your losses.
Aliens: Colonial Marines initially hit PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 back in February, with some decent anticipation given its Alien roots and affiliation with Borderlands studio Gearbox. The game turned out to be, well, rather bad, and was torn to shreds by critics and consumers alike.
That pretty much left the Wii U version. Rumors of its cancellation came quickly, when Amazon.com removed it from the game's product page. SEGA initially denied that this meant anything, but today, we know that it... did.
A SEGA rep said, "Sega can confirm that the Wii U SKU of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development."
