    I saw the title and was happy to see new Sigma's slaughterfest but turns out - it's obvious crap.

    Yeah, I also thought that was about the Alien Shooter from Sigma Team. However I googled now and found on their facebook page a screenshot of Alien Shooter 3. Looks great :)

    I want something like AvP from 2000s. That game was quite scary and tense.

    The only studio I want to make another Alien game, is Creative Assembly. Those guys made a proper alien gaem.

    Like most others, my immediate reaction was this was gonna be shit, but at least I'll be keeping an eye on this to see what becomes of it.

    One point of note though, 20th Century Fox seems to have taken the Alien franchise away from Sega. Loads of reasons to do that, but I wonder which one it was.

    The reason being Disney having acquired Fox and wanting to turn Alien into the next shitty Star Wars franchise?

    Either way, Game over man, game over.

    Chris L'Etoile, writer who worked on Mass Effect and The Outer Worlds, is possibly hinting an Alien game. (He left Obsidian in March btw.)

    I can't wait for a Battle Royale with invincible NPCs wandering about (wasn't there something that had a monster hunting gimmick already?)

    Clearly, they need to get on this bandwagon with "Alien Shooter Online". Or "Alien Shooter 3D".

    Shooting Aliens like cannon fodder is the core essence of the entire franchise, after all!

    An Alien shooter. When you absolutely, positively have no idea what to do with the license, accept no substitutes.

    So I'm guessing that stuff with L'Etoile's wife is over now. Very interesting that he'd rather work on some MMO than go back to Obsidian. Or maybe they didn't want him back?

    You, me and everyone else who played that brillant game.
    Instead we got that fucked up AvP variant around 2010 or so.

    The funny thing is, the 2001 game also had pretty good multiplayer...
