A release window for Aliens: Colonial Marines has been revealed. The shooter, from THQ and Gearbox, will be launching in spring 2012 on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“Aliens: Colonial Marines will be THE definitive Aliens gaming experience,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA of America. “Gearbox Software are doing a brilliant job translating the thrill and horror that Aliens stands for into an action-packed shooter experience with co-operative gameplay at its core.”
The history of this particular Aliens title has been a little rocky. Way back in 2008, Colonial Marines was scheduled for a 2009 release date. Then, the game was put on hold. The next year, we learned that the game's release depended on the success of Aliens vs. Predators. It seems that game did OK because Gearbox has been given the go-ahead to finish development, and it looks like they plan on putting it out in something like a timely manner.
The game will be on display at E3, and you'd better believe G4 will be there too, checking it out, and bringing you a preview.
