News: Obsidian makes the cancellation official.
Obsidian Entertainment, the development team behind the upcoming role-playing game based on the Alien movies, has announced that the unnamed Aliens RPG that was in development for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 has been cancelled.
An administrator on the official Obsidian forums had this to say about the cancellation:
Hi guys, The Guildmaster here. Rumors have circled around a bit regarding the fate of the Aliens role playing game that Obsidian and SEGA had been working on. Unfortunately, it is true that we are no longer working on the game, and we wanted to finally announce that officially to everyone who has been following its development. We're going to keep this forum up for another week for archival purposes and to allow you guys to finish up any open threads, and then we will shut it down since it is no longer a product that is in development.
Sega still plans to publish two Aliens-related games for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360: Aliens vs Predator 3, a first person shooter from Rebellion and Aliens: Colonial Marines, another first person shooter from Gearbox Software.
We'll have more soon.
