[UPDATE] Following the publication of this story, a representative for Demiurge Studios provided a statement saying it is "business-as-usual" at the company following the cancellation of Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U. The statement comes from Demiurge CEO and cofounder Albert Reed.
"We were very sorry to hear about the cancellation of Aliens for Wii U. It's business-as-usual here at Demiurge Studios. We are focused on making Shoot Many Robots for mobile kick ass and we've got another unannounced game in the works that we can't wait to unveil!"
The original story follows below
"Sega can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development," Sega told GameSpot today.
No rationale for the cancellation was provided, though the game's fate had long been in question.
It is not clear when exactly Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U was canceled or if the move will result in layoffs at Cambridge, Mass. developer Demiurge Studios. A representative from the studio was not immediately available to comment.
Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford said last month that he was unsure if Aliens: Colonial Marines for Wii U will ship at all. "We'll see," Pitchford said at the time.
"That's not our call. I think [developer Demiurge Studios] did amazing work," he went on. "I think it's really cool, but Sega's got to figure that out. We're doing the best we can."
