New Alien Shooter Coming To Console And PC

A new entry in the Alien video game series is on the way, being made by people who worked on BioShock, Borderlands, and Star Trek Online.


A new video game based on the Alien sci-fi series is on the way. FoxNext Games, the video game division of film and TV giant Fox, made the announcement of a new shooter game for PC and console, but that's basically all we know about it so far.

The untitled game is in development at the San Francisco-based Cold Iron Studios, which was established in 2015 and is now owned by FoxNext. Cold Iron is staffed by people who worked on titles such as Neverwinter, Star Trek Online, City of Heroes, BioShock Infinite, Borderlands, Doom, and Metroid Prime 3. The new Alien game will be Cold Iron's first title.

Now Playing: Alien: Isolation Video Review

Beyond the fact that it is a shooter, FoxNext also said this game will "deliver an action-packed gaming experience." No other details are available at this time.

While some people who work at Cold Iron have a background in making MMOs like City of Heroes and Star Trek Online, a FoxNext representative declined to say what kind of online elements the new Alien game may have. Whatever the case, Cold Iron CEO Craig Zinkievich teased that the studio's history of making online worlds "is a precise fit with our product roadmap ahead."

2014's Alien: Isolation from UK studio Creative Assembly is the latest installment in the Alien video game series for console and PC. The game sold more than 2 million copies. Creative Assembly talked about ideas for a sequel, but it remains to be seen if that will ever happen.

We will report back with more details on the new Alien shooter as they're announced. What would you like to see from the game? Let us know in the comments below!
