Kotaku recently spoke to Gearbox president Randy Pitchford who confirms Aliens Colonial Marines is still on for a mid-2010 release. He also says the Aliens CM game for the DS is real but it’s not being developed by Gearbox.
“Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox’s Aliens shooter, is still very much on, but won’t be arriving this year. When it does hit, there will be a DS version as well though, Gearbox president Randy Pitchford tells Kotaku…
And the rumored DS version of Aliens: Colonial Marines? It’s real but not being worked on by Gearbox, Pitchford says. It sounds like WayForward Technologies are indeed working on what they have called their spiritual follow-up to Contra 4.”
Thanks to Peteysodes for the news.
Update: Sega confirms via Gamespot what Gearbox have said. ACM is still to be released at some point next year. IGN have also confirmed that the Aliens RPG is still scheduled to come out too.
