With the game not coming out until 2009, information on Gearbox’s Aliens FPS is scarce and infrequent. However, a very very short interview posted on Computer and Video Games has given us the platforms for the upcoming game:

“Alien, of course, is no stranger to videogames but it’s been a real mixed bag of xenomorph blasting to date. Big guns, big aliens, big horror, big gore, all reproduced with today’s technology. What could possibly go wrong?Gearbox’s Alien FPS is expected on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 – but not until 2009.”

So those of you wishing to play this using that Wii Gun Controller are in for some disappointment. The short interview also mentions how big the fans of the developement team are. The usual publicity stuff then.

Well that's awesome but how about some artwork ala Street Fighter IV, that's not due out till 2009 as well but there was a teaser trailer for it damnit!  All I can say is this: DO NOT F**K this up Gearbox because AVPR was mediocre for PSP and it was done by Rebellion.  Do it right the first time and you will have your kudos...

HELL YEAH, PC as well! Finally an FPS that I can look forward to from the story viewpoint instead of just graphics and gameplay.

I'm glad to know that this is on PC as well! Woot! Hope I can play as an Alien too, and that's right! It's back to the ol' Alien vs. Predator PC games style!

Whether you can be an Alien or not is going to play a really big part in my decision of whether or not to get that.

ugh. i dont expect this one till 2010.  judging by how long it's taken them to do BIA hells highway.  but then again, they will probably use the finished BIAHH engine for this game.  so it might be even shorter of a wait.

I seriously considered leaving my current art job and applying at this studio and relocating to Dallas (in Austin now) to work on this game.  Who knows if I would have got the gig anyhow.

@Predator343: This is (sadly) not AvP as far as I understand. It's supposed to be an Aliens game, so probably featuring xenomorphs and humans.

AvP3 would look great on Crytek engine, but my fairly fast PC can barely run Crysis.  However, I can run UT3 with maxed out settings @ 1600x1200 at 60fps and it looks fabulous.  AvP3 on Unreal Engine 3 would be nice too.
