By now I imagine most of you will have seen the debacle surrounding Sega’s recent release Aliens: Colonial Marines. There has been numerous comments from alleged ex-Gearbox developers and Timegate staff. The following is a quote from the first comment to be made regarding A: CM’s development:
“Hate to say it, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up too high for Colonial Marines. I used to work at Gearbox, and the development of that game has been a total train wreck, going on what, 6 years now? Gearbox isn’t even making the game, except for the multiplayer. Primary development was outsourced to TimeGate Studios, which has a less than stellar past.”
