Aliens RPG Canned
"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.

Obsidian Entertainment 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.

An Aliens RPG sounds rather strange anyway, they probably did the right thing.

We still have AvP 3 to look forward to!

Pff. Aliens rpg... hellooo ! Even if it turned out great, it'd still be fuckin retarded.
Cancel two more games real quick and concentrate on making Alpha Protocol decent. I saw some gameplay footage in a shitty crate filled train depot and everything from graphics to animations screamed bargain bin.

There's some franchise that got great potential for RPGs but alien isn't one of them. The alien franchise could make a good open world GTA type game though...........on second thought it'll probably turn out more like red faction.

I just don't really see the Aliens setting all that great for RPGs. My friends that play PnP RPGs have discussed this for many years. Our conclusion, one-shot adventures once in a while, ok, but a full campaign would quickly devolve into boredom. Not going to discuss reasons, it would take way too much time.


Easily fill in your friends' emails to send them this page.

Before playing a game do you:

Wait for reviews, then buy.
Wait for your friends to play it, then buy.
Watch footage on YouTube, then buy.
Pirate the game first, then buy it if it's good.
Just play the pirated version.
All of the above.
None of the above.
