Simply put, too much of an acquired taste to appeal to most gamers
peej about EA's Create
Ho Hum, perhaps they should've just called it "Aliens Forever". Troubled Sega / Gearbox game Aliens: Colonial Marines seems to have been shuffled to the back of the development heap yet again, with the release of the game "unlikely in 2011" according to Gearbox head honcho Randy Pitchford.
Quoted in an EGM Interview, and via a roundabout post at Neogaf, it looks like the game has been delayed - again - but might end up as a moneyspinner in Q1 2012 instead.
Anticipation for the game was high before Christmas when Pitchford's twitter feed assured fans the game hadn't been forgotten. A brace of new screenshots even emerged, showing off exactly the sort of Aliens game you'd want to play (with no frickin' Predators in it, for a start!)
Sad news. Feels like we've been waiting for this for aeons (it's getting on for 10 years at least since those first PS2 teasers were shown!)
