Creative Assembly Developing New Alien Title
Creative Assembly, most recently known for Shogun 2: Total War, is hoping that you’re prepared for something completely different for their next title. They’re going to toss their hat into the action game ring with a brand new title based on the Alien franchise.
According to RPS, all we know is that the new game will be an action title, it will be on some manner of console and possible PC, and that the team responsible will be mostly the team from Viking: Battle of Asgard (which, unlike our reviewer, I thought was actually pretty darn good). CA is also expanding in a large way for this title, hiring on 200 new people in the UK, and adding a new 10,000 square foot studio to accommodate them. If you’re an out-of-work UK dev, CA may have a job opening for you.
There’s nothing that even looks like a timetable for the game, just the news that CA will be ‘taking their time’ with this title. Hopefully we’ll be able to bring you more news soon, because this news actually has me a little excited. It’s been too long since we had a good Alien game, and I think we’re all getting impatient waiting on Gearbox to finish Aliens: Colonial Marines.
