Hi guys, The Guildmaster here. Rumors have circled around a bit regarding the fate of the Aliens role playing game that Obsidian and SEGA had been working on. Unfortunately, it is true that we are no longer working on the game, and we wanted to finally announce that officially to everyone who has been following its development. We’re going to keep this forum up for another week for archival purposes and to allow you guys to finish up any open threads, and then we will shut it down since it is no longer a product that is in development.

All of us here at Obsidian would like to thank you for your interest and support during its development, and we encourage you to check out the recent news about Alpha Protocol, which is coming to the PC, Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 very soon!

Thanks,
-TG

Sega's reasoning: "The Aliens franchise offers us so much content to choose from that we feel it important to take a step back and carefully consider the type of game we want to release."

What a horrible publisher.

Hope they think it was worth it because that was the only Aliens game I remotely had any interest in.

Yes, a step back... and release a sequel instead of original games.

I don't understand how it makes financial sense to put all sorts of money into the development of a couple games, and then not release them.

So since the game has been canned, is there any word on what is happening to this section of the forums?

After a certain period of time it will be put on ice. Any day now.

Sad, but this gives Obsidian the opportunity to focus on Fallout: New Vegas. :(
