I’m fully expecting the Alien side of things to be rebooted but I think it’s 50/50 regarding the Predator side.

The dreaded fate of John Schaeffer and Machiko Noguchi...



More like John Schaefer and Enoch Nakai. I lump the 90’s AVP comics in with the 90’s Aliens line since there’s crossover between them; specifically with “War” being a sequel to “Berserker” and “DotS” referencing “Earth War” so Machiko has kinda already been rebooted out of the timeline along with all those stories. But to this day there’s been no glaring contradictions with the Predator films and the Predator EU so one can hope Marvel doesn’t discard or discount it.

Disney doesn't care about continuity with anything. 

This is their baby now, it will have its own continuity with its own reboot under the Disney banner.

THE ALIEN HAS FOUND YOU!

Well, the Cold Iron game is apparently going to be an open-world shlooter unfortunately, so microtransactions are essentially a guarantee. Hopefully it is like Destiny 2 where they are in no way required (the only thing I've ever spent money on in D2 is expansions/season passes, which makes sense given the game's MMO structure). But honestly, open-world in the Alien universe just feels off to me... Alien is all about cramped, dark corridors.

Nightmare, for someone like me who is not familiar with these terms in a practical sense, how does open world differ from say Isolation, ore even from some of the other Aliens games?  We had an open world in Colonial Marines didn't we?  We were allowed to walk around outside in many sections.  Am I missing something?

Open world refers to games like Elder Scrolls, GTA, Witcher, and Red Dead Redemption.

Predator Concrete Jungle was open world but no other games in either franchise as far as I can remember.

I have played literally none of those games.  So what this just means is that we will be dealing with a much larger map and it will be outdoors?

i think that's a good way to summarize; more space to roam and explore, less restrictions/containment

Anyone notice the prices spiking on older DH comics, particularly crossovers like Batman vs Predator? Those definitely won't be reprinted.

I haven't been keeping an eye on it but am very curious how aftermarket prices are reacting. Glad I've picked up all the back issues I want.
