Apparently an Aliens sequel FPS starring a grown Newt was in talks before the Disney buyout.

Nothing of value lost, if 20th Century Fox nearly greenlit it, I'm glad for Disney, at the minute anyway, 20th Century Studios' starting out good.

I'd like to get a t-shirt that says "Newt's dead. Get over it."

But that upsets people.

Maybe this game would have tied in with the alternate ending of The Predator.

It's honestly not any more absurd than having Amanda Ripley in a game. But an android named Casey? :laugh: I.dunno about that.

It really is though, Amanda Ripley passes away by the time of Aliens and AlienĀ³ but anything before them, and after Alien's malleable.

Well, I like the idea. Why not? If you like Alien 3 go watch the film. If you want options - please welcome.

But.. Earth, man. What a s@@thole. Even Ridley said: "Aliens on Earth - it's boring".

Plus, previous BKP game - LawBreakers was of rather dubious quality.

Look even if you want to bring Rebecca Jorden/Newt, Dwayne Hicks and Ellen Ripley back you don't do it any other way apart from on film. Seriously, I'd ideally want James Cameron and David Fincher back, together. And, dubious, is putting it lightly.

I'd really honestly rather Rebecca Jorden/Newt, Dwayne Hicks and Ellen Ripley all stay in the graveyard, but if you've got to do it, you've got one chance to make it worthwhile. Do it professionally with the people who deserve to, all the first three Alien films created parts of the franchise so iconic, parts of them exist in everything the franchise releases now. Personally one of the reasons I think to get it right an alternate sequel requires James Cameron or David Fincher, or both, anything else just feels wrong.

I just don't care about canon. Films are films. They are primary. Everything else: games, books, comics is just a great opportunity to have fun and tell a "different" story. They have no effect on the primary story. Nothing to worry about.

That would be insanely cool if it had a Zelda Breath of the Wild toon shader vibe and everyone were slightly toonish.
