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

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?

 Alien Social Channels Tease More Amanda Ripley Media for 2019

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.

    Ive seen most people saying thr same thing about blackout.yes its mobile and fnaf clone but for what it is is fsirly decent. And 0micro transactions never hurts.

    That said im sure theyre waiting till its closer to april to announce anything. I am cautiosly excited for it though

    Blackout seems to be better than a lot of people expected after the announcement, but FOX should've been able to anticipate the response from fans. It really wasn't surprising how so many reacted.

    I'm glad the game is fun and I'm looking forward to playing it. It's a bit confusing for me as well why are they waiting for the Watch part. They could've used that to put out the fires of the game announcement. Things have died down a bit, so if they don't do it soon, FOX is really going to miss the mark on this. So what if not all three things were loved? Resistance is interesting, Blackout is a nice fast food version of Isolation's atmosphere so we need to see what the Watch part is already. If they wait too long, the hype will be dead and it really wont feel like part of Read.Play.Watch.

    What ever it is, something big (doubtful) or some cool short video, I don't think they have anything to lose. If it's bad, than better to get over and done with it now that reigniting the hate train. But if it's good, then it will bring back some lost faith from the ones who got mad over Blackout.

    I know vaguely what's coming but I don't know the full details. From what I do know I am looking forward to it. I just mean in terms of people's reactions to everything so far. I'd probably be sat there thinking the same thing. They genuinely believed in Blackout and we all saw that first reaction. I mean it's getting a good reception now but I'd probably be sat there not wanting to go through that shit again.

    That is a painfully relatable feeling.

    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.
  8. David's Creation
    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.
