That simple synopsis had me far more intrigued than anything the franchise has produced since Aliens.

I'm at this point not convinced an Alien game announcement is anything but a fever dream seeing nothing but Blackout can ever come out. You release a new Alien product every time you sneeze but for some reason can't get a video-game to happen.

Looks like another groundswell of support for the resurrection of Hicks and Newt.

  • "You’d play as grown Newt. On Earth. Weyland-Yutani are weaponizing the aliens in a Black Mesa style facility and, of course, all hell breaks loose. Your robotic pal i.e. Bishop? A new one named “Casey” after her doll in Aliens.”

As much as I love trolling through random threads spouting about Hicks being alive, and as much as I like Isolation, I really, really would like us to get away from movie characters and/or their relatives.

Movie characters?  As in previous characters in movies i.e. Ripley, Newt, David, Peter Weyland, etc. and everyone related to them?

I just hope the Cold Iron Studios game is ok after the studio being sold.

The whole series should be rebooted.  Including the f**ktardness of multiple generations of alien survivors combating multiple generations of Aliens. 

I thought they were going with a Newt during Hadley's type of scenario which would've been alright as an Isolation dlc.  I'd play it, the same way my dumbass bought Colonial Marines, but I have a feeling I'd be just as disappointed.

characters not directly from one of the movies or direct relatives of them (like Amanda). Weyland relatives I'd say are fine though since its kind of a "must".

It's a big universe, let some new people get terrorized/be the focus.

Yeah, it's silly they can't write fresh characters not related to existing ones. They got lucky Isolation was an ok game, but Amanda still didn't really bring anything significant to the table apart from having the Ripley name. The other characters she met or who were around her tended to be much more interesting.

I've got to disagree with Amanda brought nothing to the game. I thought she worked so well as the emotional core of it. Finding that message was heart-wrenching.

Every time it comes up, I agree with the suggestion to move away from old characters. Zula proved you can make interesting new characters. Let's keep that up.

I'll always be disappointed about missing out on new games though.

We need more Alien games so I would have been fine with this bonkers idea.
Makes more sense than the alternate ending for The Predator with Newt.
Just hope that the Cold Iron one is not cancelled.

Sounds like the Cold Iron game is okay for now.

(And as opposed as I am to retcons and non-canon what-if stories, I completely would have bought a copy of this game.)
