Rumour alert everyone; it appears that a new Alien game will be announced at The Video Game Awards 2018 next month. Earlier this month, Geoff Keighley has shared an image with a font similar to the one used for the Weyland Corporation. And today, 20th Century FOX has trademarked Alien: Blackout.

Alien: Blackout was trademarked a few days ago, on November 22nd. This new Alien product was trademarked for computer game discs, meaning that this is undoubtedly a brand new Alien game (though we don’t expect 20th Century FOX to pull another Diablo Immortal on us).
Those interested can find the trademark here.
