Following Cliff Bleszinski’s announcement regarding the Boss Key Productions Aliens game that never was, VP of 3D Realms Frederik Schreiber has also taken to Twitter to reveal that Slipgate Ironworks and 3D Realms was also deep into pre-production of a different Alien game that became another victim of the Disney/Fox merger!

“This is crazy… we were in the talk about the exact same thing. New Aliens FPS, taking place at Hadleys Hope (4-player coop). Almost went through. Happened right around the time at the Disney acquisition, and when that happened, it all fell to the ground.

Yup. Game was called Aliens: Hadleys Hope. We went quite far into pre-production before the Disney/Fox acquisition, and then we had to cancel it, and move on with something else. Maybe some day!”

Given the title Hadley’s Hope, I would have expected something more along the lines of a prequel to Aliens. Instead, this sounds like it would have been a world-spanning multiplayer game much in the same vein of Destiny (somewhat like we expect Cold Iron Studio’s Aliens “persistent online” shooter to be).

When asked about the possibility of continuing production on Aliens: Hadley’s Hope, Schreiber replied: Nah, we’re having too much fun with Kingpin, Ion Fury, WRATH and Ghostrunner!

How do you feel about this other victim of the Disney merger? Would you have liked to have experienced this? Let us know in the comments down below!

I don't think it's likely Disney targetted Alien games, probably just some legality thing during the merger that took the games down.

Tbh, all these games had a weak ideas. BKP game was located on Earth in Black Mesa. And this coop game was a prequel. Really - I see no reason to do the prequel, because we already know the result.

Sounds like no big deal, the premise itself, as with the last cancelled Alien project is ridiculous anyway.

Im not too upset over this. While id love more alien games. I dont want a bunch of soulless cashgrabs flooding the market. Id rather have a super strong single player with playable aliens come out though

This cancellation and the Bosskey one don’t bother me because both seem to be weirdly placed in the canon. I don’t like the idea of Ripleys “Nuke them orbit” didnt work. And with the Bosskey game, while I love Newt I just don’t think MASSIVELY retconning Alien 3 is a good idea.

Can't say I'm surprised. Sounds like another multiplayer loot fest.

A solid single player experience is what I prefer. I like co-op too, but only as an extra and only if it's local and offline.

I'm old school.
