Sega announced that they will be publishing a new installment in the popular Aliens VS Predator video game series. The new game will be developed by the same studio that created the original FPS title, and should see a release in “early 2010”.
While this is very cool news, they are also apparently saying that this will cause a great delay in the release of Aliens: Colonial Marines, which will reportedly be pushed back to after the release of AvP. That part fucking sucks, because I was looking forward to the game.
“The innovative new AvP game presents an exciting opportunity for us,” says CEO of SEGA West, Naoya Tsurumi. “It represents a fantastic addition to our growing Aliens franchise and the reinvention of one of gaming’s most cherished iconic titles. By adjusting the release of our other Aliens titles to accommodate it, SEGA will ensure that every title lives up to the high expectations of Aliens and AvP fans.”
Hopefully, both games will be worth the wait.
