Aliens: CM Slips to 2009

No surprise, really but the release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines has slipped into the first quarter of 2009 according to CVG.com. It was originally slated for release in 2009 and then moved to Late 2008. Now it’s back to 2009.

“Sega has unveiled a whole bunch of release dates for its upcoming line-up, including Sonic Unleashed, Aliens: Colonial Marines and Space Siege. The dare we say, promising looking Sonic Unleashed has been given a strong November date, while Gearbox’s Aliens FPS Colonial Marines has unfortunately slipped into 2009.”

It’s a good thing, though. Gives the developers more time with the game. Thanks to Kyle for the news.

    hey theres still a possibility that itll come out in December, the way video game companies divide their quarterly years is odd, 1st quarter 2009 actually begins on Dec1st! so it could conceivably come out in December just b4 xmas!

    I have an theory as to why Colonial marines is pushed back to 2009.  James Camerons TERMINATOR 4 and AVATAR (starring Sigourney Weaver) are being released in 2009.  2009 is going to be a good year for sci fi and I guess they want Colonial Marines to be a part of it.

    @ COD4 fan  Ya,there are still some games out there that are hard,but I learned how to win HALO2 in less then 4 hours at %100!!!!.I want a super kick-ass game that even when cheating you'r ass off it still takes a few day's to win.I also wish they whould make more predator games.The alien games out number them like what, 3 to 1?(not counting AVP games).They need to make a super hard pred game,that whould be awesome!!!   ;D  .

    PILOT THE SULACO, DROPSHIP,& APC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It would be awsom if players could pilpt the APC in multiplayer mode,  fly accross the map in the DROPSHIP, and battle it out in space with the SULACO in 3rd person mode!!!!!!!!!!  I think the alien gameplay should be in 3rd person like Gears of War, that way you could see the aliens body twist, contort, and weave its way in  and out of the shadows. The aliens color should be custumizable in multiplayer.  Like a animal(tiger) aliens can be black,brown, white, albino, striped, & spotted.  I hope they take as much time as they need. Killzone 2 is taking its sweet time and it is supposed to be excelent. Don't rush it. Their are games like DEAD SPACE, Killzone2, and Wipeout HD.

    If I get it,I hope it's difficult.I'm so tired of playing games that one can win and get all the secret's and all the bonus's and all the extra's in less then 3 hour's!.I've got the JP game for sega genesis and I've only won as grant once,and I still have'nt won as the raptor!!.Hell,it took me month's to figure out how to win P2 for S:G (I just needed to save LOT'S of bomb's).Game's back then had great stories and were hard to win,now they make them as easy as possible just so they can make a sequel and make a ton of cash   :(  .

    well hopfully they,ll be holding back. also its quite a short dev time for a game built ground up .(never go by screen shots it a trick of the gaming trade to put pics up and not actual gameplay) titles it,ll be vying position with are  strong so i think theyll keep it back for a quieter spot in the gaming calender(as these games have thier own new engine platforms to push them along and a large gaming fan base)  farcry2 crysis2 stalker clear skys and last years games that all have sequels coming out gearswar  etc as the engines/base works done are there just the storys to be finished and polished

    Well the best game that has to do with aliens is still AvP2. I hope that they make the aliens very deadly like in Alien and Alien3. Because in video games aliens are like stupid, they dont retreat, are always charging at you, they dont sneak up on u and you can take a single alien down with a pistol.

    I don't think this game is going to do well.  Seems only fanboys would really really like it.  There hasn't been a decent Alien(s) game in my book for a good while.  If anything, I really hope they go beyond just LV426's atmosphere processor and show some newer stuff and worlds and not just the same stuff we've seen in Aliens.  I kinda just get tired of seeing the same APC (and only an APC vehicle) and wish they would show more cool designs and technology of the era.

    It's a good thing for the game actually, but let's hope the development wouldn't be held off for too long (or else it will be dated), I just hope it will be somewhere in between January and March of 2009.

    They probably got ahead of schedule,then fell back.But if they're pushing it ahead to get past other games and to get rid of bugs and such,then that's awesome   :)  .

    Seriously, Aliens:CM would not be able to compete with Gears of War 2 during the holiday rush.  It's a good move to push this game back.  Now it can have its day in the spotlight like it should.

    I can't wait until this game comes out son!!! Anything to get my mind off that retarded dishonorable AVP-R movie.  I should just buy a 9800 GX2 now and just get it over with.
