"At this point, SEGA has no plans to move forward with the Aliens RPG.
The Aliens franchise offers us so much content to choose from that we feel it
important to take a step back and carefully consider the type of game we want
to release. We plan to continue working with the Aliens franchise and ask fans
to be patient and stay tuned for more information about what SEGA has coming
out for the Aliens series of games, starting with the upcoming Alien vs. Predator
game. We are very excited about and focused on Alien vs. Predator, which promises
gamers a fantastic single player game and an equally compelling multiplayer
experience. We are confident that it provides all the excitement and fun that
the Aliens and Predator fans are looking for!" - reads a statement from
Sega regarding Obsidian's Aliens RPG.
also confirmed this:
"Rumors have circled around a bit regarding the fate of the Aliens role
playing game that Obsidian and SEGA had been working on. Unfortunately, it is
true that we are no longer working on the game, and we wanted to finally announce
that officially to everyone who has been following its development. We're going
to keep this forum up for another week for archival purposes and to allow you
guys to finish up any open threads, and then we will shut it down since it is
no longer a product that is in development."
Oh well, one less Aliens game to worry about.
