I suggested this premise years ago as a DLC for Alien: Isolation - just with multiplayer instead of the team being AI driven. Interested to see how it plays, certainly seems to be re-using a lot of assets from Isolation.
EDIT: This doesn't mean I'm ok with the sequel to Isolation being a mobile game, however. It's a neat idea but why does it need to be played as Amanda Ripley? There seems to be very little story so I don't get why you would waste a character from a game that fans are asking for a sequel of, especially knowing what backlash any marketing campaign would get for that. I'll play it out of love for the franchise, but am still looking towards the Cold Iron game as the next "true" entry into the Alien game series.
