A new AAA Alien game is reportedly in development as stated by Insider-Gaming. The existence of the game was tipped to Insider-Gaming by sources that wish to remain anonymous. Although not much information about it has been provided, but it is slated for a holiday 2023 release.
New Alien Game is in the Works
UPDATE: Insider-Gaming sources have stated that Grasshopper Manufacturer could be the developer of the project.
The new Alien game has currently been given the codename ‘Marathon’ and has a tentative holiday 2023 release at this point. It is reportedly going to be a current-gen-only game with a AAA budget. The developers of the game haven’t been revealed but the good news is it is taking inspiration from some of the best in the business.
According to the source, it will be a survival horror game and will take strong influence from the likes of Dead and Space and Resident Evil games. Additionally, Insider-Gaming has also been shown documentation and artwork for the new title.
Alien: Isolation Sequel Could be in The Works As Well
The same sources who have revealed the new Alien title have told Insider-Gaming about a very probable Alien: Isolation sequel as well. The game is either already in development or in its conceptual form. The developers haven’t been confirmed but Creative Assembly is supposedly the one working on it. The 2014 title, Alien: Isolation was quite a successful title and the same devs making the sequel does make sense. But again take this with a huge grain of salt as nothing is confirmed at the time of writing.
Insider-Gaming has also pointed out that the Twitter account of Creative Assembly does state that they are working on ‘Two unannounced projects’. And it would be really interesting if they turn out to be the Alien projects. With Aliens: Dark Descent already in the works and the new AAA project almost confirmed, it brings the total to 2. And if the sequel is also in the works we have 3 new Alien games coming our way.
