There’s a new article on Kotaku about the various projects Sega have got going. Nothing new was revealed really. It’s no secret that Sega was thinking about doing a third Aliens project. What genre it will be is anybody’s guess.
Might the newly announced, Ridley Scott Alien prequel project be a source of Aliens inspiration for Sega? “We’re quite excited about that and buzzing from the news of that,” Hayes said. But of the third game, Hayes would only say, ” We’d like to think we’ll be doing a third project but at the moment we haven’t confirmed what the third project will be.”
There’s a little interesting bit about AvP. Apparently, Vivendi was the original publisher of AvP until they merged with Activision in 2008. Then Sega took over as publisher. This sorta explains why Sega dropped Colonial Marines from the limelight and made AvP its first priority earlier this year. AvP is the bigger project, afterall. Thanks to Newbeing for the news.
In related news, GameCom in Cologne is happening next week (19-23 Aug) and Sega plan to show some marine footage at the convention. Alien gameplay footage will also be shown behind closed-doors. It’s not clear whether Sega will release anything online but maybe someone at the convention will record some cam footage. Watch this space…
