Basically just been revealed by an announcement regarding the Titan Books & Free League RPG scenario collaboration.

Quote"The ALIEN RPG has established the 'Frontier War,' as remote human colonies come under assault by an unknown enemy, dropping a deadly pathogen that unleashes monsters on those worlds," Titan Acquisitions Editor Steve Saffel said. "At the same time, in the wake of the Titan novel Alien: Into Charybdis, political tensions on Earth reach a boiling point."

These dramatic events play out in the recently released ALIEN RPG: Colonial Marines Operations Manual by Free League and three upcoming trade paperback novels by Titan Books, each independent but all set against a dramatic galactic backdrop:
Alien: Colony War by David Barnett  (April 2022)
Alien: Inferno's Fall by Phillipa Ballantine and Clara Carija (July 2022)
Alien: Enemy of My Enemy by Mary SanGiovanni (February 2023)
The results will set the stage for further developments within the ALIEN Universe, as depicted in the roleplaying game and original fiction.

We've been getting a lot of fresh Alien news lately. I love that they're going to give the continuity a unified universe treatment. :D

Are they though? The Titan novels feel very connected to the Dark Horse comics... which are very not connected to the Marvel comics. ;)

I misunderstood. It appears that Free League was specifically referring to a joint storyline with Titan and not a larger unified universe. Sorry (I'm not a native english speaker, so I misread). :D

You say that like it's a bad thing.

It's not, it's very very good, Marvel's the illegitimate one in my eyes personally.

Will Sal have a prominent role in shaping this shared EU?

Description added.

QuoteWhile a moon hurtles toward certain destruction, taking with it a Weyland-Yutani bioweapons lab, talks on a nearby colony could lead to all-out war among the colonies.

Hygeia, an outer rim colony, is doomed as the moon on which it was built hurtles toward an inevitable collision with the dead planet Hephaestus. When a distress signal arrives from a Weyland-Yutani biowarfare outpost near the colony, a desperate plan is launched to evacuate the trapped scientists and colonists. Their destination: LV-846, a key United Americas colony where high-level talks are scheduled to address the galaxy-wide hostilities between the colonies. Once there the evacuees, including a contingent of Colonial Marines, discover a plot that could plunge the colonies into all-out war. Their only hope may be an alliance with the deadliest ally imaginable.

BONUS MATERIAL: exclusive to this book, a new RPG scenario from Free League, publishers of the award-winning Alien role-playing game.

Also seems it to be released February 21th.

The amount of novels being queued for release reminds me of my HS days.  Very nostalgic.

I think we've surpassed those releases now. Which actually makes me happy! I do really like being in this second golden age.
