After a little tip from one of our wonderful users, and some nerd searching, it looks like Aliens: Colonial Marines, which was originally going to be released for the Playstation 2 back in 2001 but was canceled for unknown reasons, has been dug out of it’s shallow grave and resurrected! This months issue of Game Informer has it right on the cover nice and big, so go pick that up and check it out.
The original version of the game that was to come out in 2001, was going to take place between the second and third Aliens movies. The story line was a rescue team of colonial marines and a salvage team go on a search-and-rescue mission for the missing United States Colonial Marines ship called Sulaco. The game is going to be coming out sometime in 2009 for the PC, Playstation 3, and the Xbox 360. We’ll keep you updated.
