The license seems to have been in limbo forever, but Sega and Gearbox are proud to announce that Aliens: Colonial Marines will be coming to PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 next Spring, 2012. Gearbox President Randy Pitchford called the game a “dream project” for the studio, while Senior VP Gary Knight of Sega said, “Aliens: Colonial Marines will be THE definitive Aliens gaming experience.”
The latest stab at video games by the Alien franchise hopes to be a full fledged “new chapter” in the universe, down to the weapons used by the characters. Colonial Marines will also bring you to familiar territory of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope when it releases next year.
Sega will bring Aliens: Colonial Marines to next week’s E3 Expo and has unveiled a new teaser trailer, which you can find after the break.
