Alien Social Channels Tease More Amanda Ripley Media for 2019

Near the end of the year 2018, Fox started teasing on their social channels that the “Alien Universe expands” in 2019. One of the things we picked up on in the hashtags of those teases was the mention of Amanda Ripley, with many speculating the espionage-style entries were coming from her.

With us having ventured into the new year, Fox have continued to tease the current media projects that we should be learning more about soon…

40 years ago, the Nostromo disappeared… In 2019, Amanda Ripley will uncover the secrets it left behind — no matter what. #AmandaRipley #ReadPlayWatch #January

Posted by Alien on Saturday, January 5, 2019

 

Fox is not as coy with these teases focusing on Amanda Ripley, the star of the acclaimed 2014 game Alien: Isolation by Creative Assembly.

The tagline of “Read. Play. Watch.” is featured under her name drop.

As far as the “Read” portion of that goes, we know that an Alien: Isolation novel will be released in July. Dark Horse Comic’s Aliens Resistance comic also comes to mind, which features Amanda and serves as a sequel to both Isolation and the Defiance comic series. The first issue of Resistance is scheduled to hit shops quite soon on January 23rd.

The “Play” and “Watch” bits of that tagline remain more mysterious. We know Cold Iron Studios is continuing their work on an Alien multiplayer shooter, which may or may not be under the title of Alien: Blackout, which was a game title that Fox trademarked last year. It’s possible that Blackout is a separate title that will feature Amanda Ripley, though I would pause before getting my hopes up for a full-blown Alien: Isolation sequel.

It’s also rumored that Fox is developing some sort of new Alien series, perhaps Amanda could also be starring in such?

I’m honestly surprised that Amanda is now about to be back in the spotlight for multiple media projects more than four years after we last saw her in Isolation (which we totally loved). Now It seems as though her escape of Sevastopol Station may have just been the beginning.

With 2019 being the 40th Anniversary of the original film, we should be in store for a particularly Alien-filled year.

    What if it's a watch?  Get it like a "watch" to tell time?

    Sorry.  Couldn't resist.   ;D

    It would be really clever if they used the actual Sevastopol geometry generated for the video game and made a film in there.  It could be live action or it could be digital but just shot at very high resolution sort of like the Clone Wars cartoon.  That would be a good waste of my time.

    Rip the bandaid off if it’s something stupid.  Get it over with rather than igniting anger twice.

    If it’s a streaming series, go ahead and make us wait a month.  Most of us should be happy by the end of the wait.

    I think a machinema edit of Isolation would be a happy medium for me.  I’d be okay with it, but I’m sure the internet would rage again.

    People overreacted with Blackout. They'll no doubt overreact to this. People are expecting, or should I say wanting, an Amanda Ripley streaming TV show, or even a new movie.. So yeah, they should just rip the bandaid off and get it over with because it's not likely.

    I suppose Twitter does have that feature...
    I’ve been fighting Twitter until recently, so I haven’t bothered to explore the settings much.   :P

    But now I’ve turned off all notifications except for tweets from AlienAnthology and AVPGalaxy.

    I would actually prefer something animated than live action. An anthology of standalone stories like Animatrix and Halo Legends would be a great way to explore different stories with different writers and artists.

    I mean, what are the odds that they could successfully keep something like a series under wraps that wasn't just rumor mill speculation. While I wish it was something like a well budgeted Netflix series (although I highly doubt), I personally would love to see something animated. I think you could do a lot with Alien stories in animation. I guess we'll have to wait and see what "WATCH" refers too.

    Don't run away from your feelings.

    Why you rat bas... :laugh: lol, okay that was funny.

    You know The Old One is really like 6 years old right?  It says so on her info page.    ;D

    lol goofy, this is not supposed to mean anything, other than everytime I see an "I love you" or "I know" in these threads, I post the corresponding Empire Strikes Back gif.  Sailing Rabbit can attest to that.

  11. Still Collating...
    Since the Play part is nothing super special and Hicks did use a "Can barely hold my excitement" gif, I'd wager that the Watch part is gonna be something really good, because I doubt he'd get that excited for a mobile game...  ;)

    Another less likely speculation. Since we have a comic and a novel for the Read part, maybe we have another game for the Play part? Maybe more info on Cold Iron Studios' game will be released soon?  ;D
