No, we don't believe it either, but at least Sega has confirmed that the nebulous development
of Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines
is still ongoing. According to a release list issued to UK site VideoGamer.com
, Sega currently has the xenophobic first-person shooter pinned to the first quarter of its 2009 release calendar -- though the article questions whether said calendar is Gregorian or fiscal.
Joining Colonial Marines in the Q1 '09 release window is Obsidian's Bauer-esque
spy RPG, Alpha Protocol
. We've contacted Sega of America to clarify these dates and confirm the other titles on the list, including House of the Dead: Overkill
(February), Sonic and the Black Knight
(March) and Bayonetta
(a vague "2009").
