[Rumour] New Triple-A Survival Horror Alien Game In The Works?

According to a new rumor posted by Insider Gaming, a new Alien triple-A game is in development and aiming for a holiday release in 2023. According to this latest rumor the new game, apparently codenamed Marathon, will be a survival horror game heavily inspired by genre staples Dead Space and Resident Evil.

Sources, who have provided documents and information under the condition of anonymity have shown that a new AAA Alien game is in development with a tentative holiday 2023 release.

It’s understood that the Alien title, currently believed to be under the codename “Marathon” is currently being developed for current-generation consoles with a AAA budget.

Unfortunately, Insider Gaming wasn’t able to verify the developer behind the project but learned that the game is slated to be a survival horror that will take inspiration from franchises including Dead Space and Resident Evil.

Alien: Isolation originally started life as a 3rd person survival horror title, before pivoting to a first-person perspective. This new survival horror title would be in addition to the previously announced Aliens: Dark Descent from Focus Entertainment and Tindalos Interactive, and Survios’ untitled action-horror VR game.

 [Rumour] New Triple-A Survival Horror Alien Game In The Works?

Typically we would not report on rumors such as these, but the writer, Tom Henderson, is a well known and reliable “leaker” with a proven track record of early leaks of Battlefield, Call of Duty and Star Wars, having reported that Quantic Dream was working on a Star Wars game several months before Star Wars Eclipse was officially announced.

The same article also claims that a sequel to Alien: Isolation is either in-development, or being pitched, but also seemed less certain of this particular detail.

The same source, who provided the documentation and concept art of the Alien title has also said that an Alien: Isolation sequel is either in development or is currently being pitched. The developer behind the game wasn’t given, but presumably, Creative Assembly could be working on the project. For now, Insider Gaming would like to report this title heavily under the RUMOR category until more corroboration or reports are provided.

Insider Gaming tried to contact Creative Assembly for comment, but those contacted were unresponsive before the publication of this report.

 [Rumour] New Triple-A Survival Horror Alien Game In The Works?

While generally well loved by the fanbase, Sega were reportedly unhappy with the sales of the game and despite many clickbait articles and rumors around the subject of a sequel, none has still emerged. Alien: Isolation has since been ported to both Nintendo Switch and Android/iOS in the intervening years, as well as receiving a follow-up game in the form of Rival Games & Theory Interactive unappreciated Alien: Blackout for Android/iOS.

    If they ever make Isolation 2 I really hope they completely re-work the alien, the look of it but especially it's behaviour. It wasn't so much alien imo as it was a dinosaur stalking you ala the kitchen scene in Jurassic Park. I think it should be chilling and hiding in ceilings and walls, you know dangling from chains or crawled up between pipes, only reacting to your mistakes such as tipping over furniture or shining your flashlight directly at it for too long and then have it emerge creepily and slowly only to burst into extremely quick movements to close the gap between you and it. Also, the environments need to be darker and more reliant on you lighting up the environment with what you got.

    As awesome as this is that we could be getting up to four new Alien games in the near(ish) future, I do have to agree with The Shuriken; it would be nice if we could maybe get at least one new Predator game to go along with them too.

    This great amount of games under the IP of Alien gives me hope that Dead by Daylight's next licensed chapter will be Alien.

    The Xenomorph as a killer and Ripley as a survivor would be amazing!

    It's certainly... a take?

    For me Isolation remains to be one of the greats in my catalog, and I even did 100% in achievements once on Xbox then I think it was last year when I did 100% again on PC.

    It was not a perfect run by any means, but it worked the best for me in that I was constantly moving.  If you pressed into something you could just go left or right until you couldn't move anymore or got around the obstacle. 

    Didn't work where androids were present, or more than one Alien.  But usually there is just the one Alien. 

    Also didn't use it during the story part of the game where no aliens were present......

    I didn't either really aside from the start.  My gameplay method was to hold the motion tracker out and walk backwards from the Alien the whole game.

    Also not a fun experience. 

    If you liked it though, good for you.

    Isolation 2 will be fine if they make some gameplay tweaks.  I'm not a fan of waiting in spots for five minute spurts.  I got real world shit to do.  I have real world shit I'm supposed to be doing when I play normal games to, but I'm usually not thinking about it when I'm playing them. 

    It had excellent world building and presentation though. 

    If it is going to be the same style of gameplay as the first isolation, I'd personally rather have the Marine FPS number 3000. 

    We still haven't gotten that game.  ALL of them, even my favorite of the bunch, AvP2 has failed (which was a great game but to me always felt like it captured the spirit of Jurassic Park better than it did Alien series). 

    I want to play as a Marine, chasing the infestation across space stations and ships and colonies of places WE HAVEN'T BEEN BEFORE (get off of LV 426 plz), in situations we haven't been in. 

    Like I want to be a crewmember with very limited ammo on the outside of a ship, or asteroid, etc having to hunt down an Alien as it actively hunts you.  I want to go to a space station that is like an agriculture hot spot for a earth bound colony, and then stop an infestation from killing the civilian NPCs of said space station.  I want to get in a dropship and follow an escape pod from the agriculture space station down to a colony world and get in massive confrontations with more equipment than just a pulse rifle or smartgun.  I want APCS.  I want tanks.  I want to call in orbital strikes on hive entrances.  I want to call in CAS with dropships or other aerial equipment.  I want to wreck shit in a modern take of the MAX suit.  I want to do it with a Platoon of other Marines, or world side security forces, OR THE ARMY.  I want to be the platoon synthetic and stop a company synthetic from taking an Alien offworld etc etc etc

    Part of the reason that people are tired of the Marine take on things is that they actually just kept doing the exact same shit.  There is no reason that 2002s AvP should be more IMMERSIVE than the newer titles.  Somehow they keep making Marine campaigns with limited scope.

    I want a Marine campaign with a big scope, where the Aliens were as dangerous as the first AvPs.  You have the advantage at range, but the rebar fingertip from the biomechanical alien is the kiss of death.

    It doesn't even have to be a Marine.  It could be anybody that can physically pull a trigger of a gun that can kill an Alien. 

    I've also thought about having that same idea, but it being used in a precursor force to the USCMC.  Like the outer expeditionary defense fleet.  You have an organization wrecking battle with the Alien and then they reorganize into the United Americas and establish the USCMC or something.

    The immersive combat trooper vs Alien experience just hasn't happened yet.  And I can't really understand WHY it hasn't happened. 

    And I'm not talking about a COD arcade clone.  But a FPS establishing a world with weight, with areas to explore and get immersed in.

     :o Oh I love the og Resident Evil trilogy and Alien Isolation. I also love third person games. Could this be the game to finally take Isolation's place as the best game adaption of the franchise? I hope so.
  9. Kailem
    Yeah normally I'd say it was bs, especially the mention of "Alien Isolation 2." But Tom Henderson has a good track record when it comes to legit leaks, so if he's posting it then I'm inclined to believe there might actually be some truth to this.

    As of March 2015, Alien: Isolation had sold over 2.1 million copies in Europe and the US. It was ported by Feral Interactive to Linux and OS X in late 2015, to Nintendo Switch on 5 December 2019, and to Android and iOS devices on 16 December 2021, and was added to the Amazon Luna service on 14 October 2021.

    Sources have said that SEGA was "extremely happy" with the reception of the 2014 title, but Creative Assembly were busy with the Total War franchise and their new FPS Hyenas. However, the Creative Assembly Twitter page does state that the studio is currently working on two new unannounced projects.

    These two games, plus Aliens: Dark Descent by Focus Entertainment puts the total number of alien games that we currently know of to three (quick math).


    Great news if true, though every Alien game after Isolation has sucked imo so i'm pretty cynical lol. 


    Well Fireteam was decent in my opinion, it basically brought what it advertised. Just wish they add a first person mode to it.

    The 4chan is a different claim from the looks of it. Different details, and the 4chan one looks very obviously fake. However, this one from Inside Gaming...I'm not familiar with the outlet, but it had been noticed - thanks to Kailem for pointing out - that Tom Henderson had been retweeting this and seems to imply some knowledge:

    https://twitter.com/_Tom_Henderson_/status/1595168153516269568?s=20&t=Ls5CDi6OqOXhmagkX4vyEA

    I don't know of him myself, but I'm told that he's a reliable leaker for video gaming with a proven record for COD and Battlefield.


    Ah, looks like it was Tom Henderson actually writing that report. I missed that, the author credit image was so small to me.  :laugh: Looks like it's just his website full stop.
