Creative Assembly studio director, Tim Heaton, recently told Eurogamer.net that the just announced Alien ‘action’ title and movie are unlikely to be linked. The studio director says:
“What we can say is that we understand that games that are time-constrained to be day-and-date with the movie are often flawed so it’s probably something that we wouldn’t really want to be tied to.”
The game was announced at a press event held in the UK as part of an industry gathering with the Minister for Culture, Ed Vaizey. But it’s likely to be a long way off until we hear much more about it.
