Sega has announced that the hotly anticipated Aliens: Colonial Marines will now release on 12th February 2013.
“I am thrilled to announce the definitive launch date for Aliens: Colonial Marines,” Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford commented in a release. “Aliens: Colonial Marines is the culmination of a life-time of inspiration from the films and relentless passion and drive from the exceptionally talented development team behind the scenes.”
“We knew this game would be incredible from the moment Gearbox began developing Aliens: Colonial Marines,” said Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing. “Now that the title is in its final stretch of development, we can confidently release the exact date that gamers will finally get to experience this blockbuster thrill-ride.”
Why the delay is not mentioned, it could be that Gearbox want a little bit more time to polish, or that they just want to stay clear of the Black Ops 2 end of year juggernaut. What ever the reason, the marines will be in good company with Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider both pegged February 2012 release.
