After the disappointing return of Duke Nukem, Aliens: Colonial Marines could possibly be the one game that will restore Gearbox’s status. And since we have a long time since its release, Gearbox decided to follow the example of some other developers and listen to the suggestions of all “Aliens” fans. Which was to be expected since this game is addressed to them.
Speaking with GameSpot, chief creative officer Brian Martel said:
“We definitely listen to what everybody wants, listening to the forums, bringing in people to test our games and those sort of things. We’ve really been able to hone in on what it is to be a true Aliens: Colonial Marines game.”
Sounds great but could this just be a statement to gain gamers’ trust? Only time will tell, though we doubt that Gearbox won’t give their best to deliver for one of the most anticipated titles of 2012. They admitted to be big fans of Aliens after all and lets be honest, who wouldn’t want to develop a great game that is based on this legendary series?
“The fan reaction has been exceptional. Anybody who has had a love of Aliens has been extremely happy with how we treated things like the pulse riffle, how we’ve dealt with the Xenos and the settings of course, because we’re big fans as well.”
Aliens: Colonial Marines is slated for a 2012 release on PC, X360 and PS3!
