The Alien franchise and the video game is a story that has been going on for decades now and the trend should not stop any time soon. According to information from Insider Gaming, two new games are on the way.
From Ripley to Isaac Clarke ?
It is the Insider Gaming site, piloted by the famous Tom Henderson, who shouts it loud and clear: two new games stamped Alien are in development. The media relies in particular on several anonymous sources who would have provided them with documents and details, including concept art. The information is obviously to be taken with a grain of salt pending formalization.
The first game would thus be codenamed “Marathon” and would be developed for current generation consoles, with an AAA budget. Alas, Insider Gaming failed to find out the name of the development studio, but the inspirations of the project would draw from Resident Evil and… Dead Space. Ironic, when you know that the latter was largely inspired by Alien originally!
Last info: this new Alien game would be scheduled for the end of 2023.
Finally a sequel to Alien Isolation?
Also according to this same source, Insider Gaming claims thatA sequel to Alien Isolation is either in development or being pitched for approval. Similarly, the developer is not known precisely but could again be Creative Assembly.
As a reminder, Alien Isolation is a survival-horror released in 2015 and certainly one of the most popular games among fans: the player played Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, pursued by a xenomorph within the USCSS Torrens, fifteen years after the events of the first Alien movie. The title was notably playable exclusively in the first person.
While waiting for an officialization or a denial, let’s highlight the existence of Alien Dark Descent, published by Focus Entertainment and which will opt for a very different genre: that of action-tactics. It doesn’t have a release date yet.
