Sega and developer Gear Box Software have delayed Aliens: Colonial Marines again! If I were the pessimistic sort, I’d be screaming game over, man! Game over! But I’m willing to give Gearbox the benefit of the doubt, especially after viewing the excellent new trailer above.
The game is now scheduled for a February 12, 2013 release on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. The release date of the Wii U version will be announced “at a later time.”
Aliens: Colonial Marines just can’t seem to catch a break as this is the fourth or fifth release date delay (I’ve honestly lost count) since the game was announced in 2006. But Gearbox President Randy Pitchford wants to assure fans that it’s really coming this time:
“I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines. 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.”
No reason was given for the delay.
