SEGA will publish an all-new Aliens vs. Predator game and behind its development will be Rebellion, creators of the original 1999 Aliens versus Predator.
SEGA has recently cut 20% of its workforce, mainly from its research and development sectors and this has led it to the decision to "strategically updated the release of the other upcoming Aliens titles currently in development within its portfolio."
In Layman's terms, we guess this means that the first person shooter, Aliens: Colonial Marines won't see the light of day any time soon.
“The innovative new AvP game presents an exciting opportunity for us,” says CEO of SEGA West, Naoya Tsurumi, “It represents a fantastic addition to our growing Aliens franchise and the reinvention of one of gaming’s most cherished iconic titles. By adjusting the release of our other Aliens titles to accommodate it, SEGA will ensure that every title lives up to the high expectations of Aliens and AvP fans.”
SEGA will announce further details of the new Aliens vs. Predator very soon.
