Man, I'd almost forgotten how much I love that AVP: The Hunt Begins artwork. Such a good image.
That was a good listen! Thanks to the prevalence of AVP content growing up I've always liked to imagine that the Alien and Predator universes were one and the same, so I'd definitely love it if they just finally made it totally officially official (as opposed to just partially official, of course). I don't ever want the "AVP" branding to go away, but I'd be totally down for one big all-encompassing Alien/Predator Universe.
That's one of the reasons I love the Alien RPG so much is that it basically takes everything and presents it as a real universe of Alien content. I'm just hoping that Free League eventually relents to all the constant requests for a Predator sourcebook and eventually makes one so that it can truly
But yeah I definitely wouldn't want them to throw everything out and start from scratch to get there, if only because let's face it, they're never going to top the absolute best movies of either series no matter how good any potential reboot might be. I agree that they could do some unconnected stories off in some far-flung corner of the universe just fine without necessarily having to be burdened by the continuity of the existing films if they really wanted, and I'd be all for an approach like that.
I definitely want another AVP film at some point though, likewise unconnected to the existing too. And another game, for sure. No more prequels though.
