Aliens: Colonial Marines Delayed Again, Gearbox Confirms

Share And Comment

I’m not going to use the term vaporware here because Gearbox is behind this one and I love their work. With that said, the delays on this game are starting to get ridiculous. After reports broke about changing release dates on the game’s official website, the developer finally came out and released this official statement.

“Aliens: Colonial Marines is a process of creativity and invention and those don’t necessarily follow the structure of an assembly line. While setting clear goals, deadlines and predictions is helpful, they are often subjective. We don’t want to sacrifice the creative process just for the sake of following a blue print. We prefer to have the creative discovery shape that blue print because our goal is to make a great game, and we are prioritizing this goal over the previously targeted date.”

While the rep made no mention of a new date, the date now on the site is Autumn 2012. With Gearbox busy at work on Borderlands 2, the next Duke Nukem and a few other mystery titles I wouldn’t be surprised if this game doesn’t make it into the calendar year because if they wait for Autumn its going to be really crowded with great games and this one might get lost. Hey, look on the bright side at least there is a new trailer.
