Aliens Colonial Marines Still Alive

Game Informer recently posted up a short article regarding the status of Gearbox’s Colonial Marines:

“I’ll tell you this: We love Aliens. You guys know that. You guys did a cover story, you know how much we care about it. We’re working our butts off on it. I think when it comes, people won’t be disappointed, but right now it’s really not up to us to talk about it.”

I’m sure this’ll come as a relief to those out there who thought that Colonial Marines might be falling to the wayside. In the wake of Borderland’s release, I’m sure more resources will be put back onto Colonial Marines. Especially as AvP is drawing closer and Sega will be turning back to CM when AvP is out into the world. Thanks to Matt Mazzucco and AvPSpectrum for the news.

    After watching that crytech 3 engine video for xbox.... I really wish they try using that engine  they cant because it dosent work on that/this generation of consoles, even the first one dosent..and as u may know consoles are were the companys make their largest profit margin regarding game ..thats why when ported to pc they have large chunks missing and look pretty crap and somehow crippled

    you actually are starting an argument because im not a hater avp and never stated that anywhere.  Im only saying I prefer CM over avp. AVP is clearly arcade style gameplay and while I don't prefer this style I am going to still play it.

    to spoon and all the avp haters: don't go bashing a game that has yet to be released by comparing it to a game that you only know of through screen shots and descriptions. I'm not trying to start an argument here, just making a point.

    Im actually looking forward to this game alot more then avp.  Im sick of arcade shooters and this is going to be more team based, tactical shooter.  Games with aliens and predators need to be more suspenseful.  Something AVP lacks.    After watching that crytech 3 engine video for xbox....  I really wish they try using that engine.   Screw unreal.

    I wish they would also make Aliens Extermination for consoles. Especially for the Wii and also now that Xbox360 and PS3 will be getting motion type controls in the future.

    JSPoole weren't you banned from Gearbox forums??? From what we know the UE3 is a MUCH more capable engine than AvP3's engine and I believe A:CM is going to look much better because of time and Gearbox's attention to accuracy and detail.

    sh0dan-  are you that naive?  Those were ''target renders'' of A:CM gearbox used in it's early promos. You remember last time gearbox used target footage?  Hell's Highway looked NOWHERE near as good as these ''target renders'' by gearbox promised, so i wouldn't get too smug about it.

    i knew they wouldn't shelf A:CM, but i think they're gonna do a major graphic overhaul so it can match the graphics of AVP. I wonder what other Alien game they're gonna come out with; i know there was an article about them possibly releasing a third game.
