That’s right, yet another game that gamers were waiting in anticipation for has been pushed back into next year. Joining the likes of Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite is SEGA’s upcoming game Aliens:Colonial Marines.
Set to be released later this year on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii-U (although no date was confirmed for the Wii-U release as of yet), the release date for Aliens has been pushed back to the 12th of February 2013 but, still no Wii-U date has been confirmed as of yet.
Aliens:Colonial Marines is set to bring familiar environments from the iconic film franchise, straight to the player as well as new environments which will all provide for the players to get a true Aliens experience.
“I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “Aliens: Colonial Marines is the culmination of a life-time of inspiration from the films and relentless passion and drive from the exceptionally talented development team behind the scenes.”
“We knew this game would be incredible from the moment Gearbox began developing Aliens: Colonial Marines,” said, Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing for SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. “Now that the title is in its final stretch of development, we can confidently release the exact date that gamers will finally get to experience this blockbuster thrill-ride.”
“SEGA has a proven track record with the ALIENS franchise. ALIENS vs. PREDATOR released by SEGA in 2009 became one of their top-selling titles,” said Gary Rosenfeld, Senior Vice President for New Media for Fox Consumer Products. “We look forward to working with them and bringing an exciting new way for fans to immerse themselves in the ALIENS world.”
As a way of apologizing for this movement in the release date, a new trailer has been released which can be viewed below.
