Couldn't resist to come here when I read the news!

CEO's wishful thinking I guess! Direct sources disagree. Graphically maybe, the rest? not so much.

They definitely went a bit overboard with those hybrid designs.  Good to see you back on the forum by the way.

Yeah, this PR talk certainly grabbed my attention! Very unfortunate words on Feargus' part. Anyway, see you guys!

For real? Dammit now I'm even more pissed this promising title will never see the light. Turn-based combat is almost extinct in today's games.

The rhino alien was a bit too much, but this -

- I like this. The alien's different appearance would be justified in this game - the various fauna's genetic traits make up for different aliens and this would be an RPG after all - more enemy types are required, compared to FPSs.

F**k. This game had potential.. instead, we get an average/decent/fairly good AvP.

Oh well, what can you do - all hopes go to A:CM now.

As much as I would love this to be true - it'll probably never happen.

And to be honest - I'd rather see it die completely than become "the DNF" of the AvP franchise..

On the other hand, if Bioware got their hands on this one - now that would kick serious ass.

Not talking about this exact same project, I'm talking about a completely new alens based rpg project. This project is fubar.

Like you said - not coming anytime soon, though. At least not with A:CM and (come on, we all know it'll happen) AvP4 planned for the next few years.

And with the RPG market slowly dying out (essentially it already died a long time ago in the early 2000's), I doubt we'll ever get an Aliens role playing game.  :(
