Considering how poorly Colonial Marines was, it's not surprising. It's not entirely their fault either, Gearbox was a big part of the problem.

Wasnt Gearbox really more responsible for the mess than anyone else? Thought they were the ones with the license and who were dicking around with the game, dropping it on random studios because they just wanted to milk borderlands instead.

It wasn't the Aliens game that killed Timegate, it was the lawsuit with the publisher of the Section 8 games that forced them into bankruptcy. The "quality" of their work on the Aliens game had no effect whatsoever on the fall of this studio, but it sure didn't help their reputation.

Regardless of what led to their downfall, I hope they find some jobs someplace else. The gaming industry is becoming cutthroat.
