Aliens: Colonial Marines Dated

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
It almost seems like a running joke at this point. After freeing https://www.trueachievements.com/Duke-Nukem-Forever-xbo....htm from it's decade and a half in Development Hell, Gearbox is now struggling to release its own original game in a timely manner. https://www.trueachievements.com/Aliens-Colonial-Marine....htm was first announced nearly five years ago, and since then has received countless delays. I even covered the most recent delay back in January, yet here we are again.

The game was pushed out of the Fall 2012 window and into the Early 2013 space, not citing any particular reason. It does seem like this might be the last delay though, as the news has come with an official release date and a new trailer.



It's about time. I was starting to wonder if the game would just violently emerge from our chests one day, but it looks like we can finally mark our calendars for the co-op FPS to emerge in stores instead. Look for it on February 12th, next year, and look for the rest of our coverage here.
