Aliens: Colonial Marines Delayed Until 2013
Yet another game is hit with a delay, this time it being Aliens: Colonial Marines (once again). The game is now set to release on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 12, 2013. There is still no release date announced for the Wii U version.
Though this is not the first time Aliens: Colonial Marines has been delayed, this is the first time that Gearbox and Sega has set an actual release date for the game, before being simply “Fall 2012”.
“We’ve always prioritized the goals we had for the game over any particular launch window,” Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford said. “The game’s development has been invigorating and natural relative to our experience making games and the objectives for it. Because the game was ‘announced’ with that original press release, it might feel, to those of you who have been waiting for the game since then, that it has been in development a long time.”
“In fact, with the release date now set, it turns out that the total development time we have spent creating Aliens: Colonial Marines is about the same length of time as we had spent creating the original Borderlands or the original Brothers in Arms – both games that we had waited to announce until we were much farther along in the development process.”
