Aliens: Colonial Marines release date announced
Posted on May 21, 2012 by

Matt Powers, Senior Producer over at SEGA for Aliens: Colonial Marines, stopped by the Playstation Blog to show off the latest trailer for the highly anticipated game. While previous trailers highlighted the frenzied gameplay that players will be experiencing, this trailer, called "Suspense," gives more insight to the story of the game, which takes place weeks after the movie:

Aliens: Colonial Marines shares the same suspense and terror that the movie Aliens portrayed back when it was released back in 1986. In addition to the trailer, a firm release date was also announced. Colonial Marines will be coming out on February 12, 2013 instead of the projected October 2012 date.

As for the reason for the push back, on the SEGA blog, Gearbox CEO and President Randy Pitchford had this to say:

In fact, with the release date now set, it turns out that the total development time we have spent creating Aliens: Colonial Marines is about the same length of time as we had spent creating the original Borderlands or the original Brothers in Arms – both games that we had waited to announce until we were much farther along in the development process.

While it would be easy for me to dismiss this as a cover for not wanting to compete against Halo 4 and BlackOps 2, I don’t think that is the case. In my opinion, in addition to working on this, they were also developing Duke Nukem Forever and Borderlands 2 as well. Resources went to those two games and now that DNF was released and Borderlands 2 is coming out this September, all the team can now concentrate on Aliens: Colonial Marines. Speaking of Borderlands 2, it wouldn’t be wise to put both games and divide post release support. It’s best to give both games breathing room. At least that’s what I think. Either way Colonial Marines is going to be one hell of a game and I can’t wait for it.
