SEGA: Aliens: Colonial Marines SP was not outsourced to TimeGate Studios

DSOGaming writes: "Aliens: Colonial Marines primary development has not been outsourced to TimeGate and Gearbox Software was not responsible just for the game's multiplayer, Sega of America's Senior Producer Matthew J. Powers confirmed to Playnews on Tuesday." (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Uh oh, it looks like Gearbox really is to blame.

Gearbox: Uummmmmmm.... it wasn't us who made it??? :-) :-) :-)
Sega:............... uh, yes you did.
Gearbox: FUUUUUUUUU-

This is utterly hilarious. Gearbox has gotten so used to passing the blame whenever they screw up (which is worryingly regular) but this time the publisher has actually stepped in to set the record straight.

Poor Randy! Any minute now he's going to revert to calling his detractors terrorists again...

What a loser.

Pitchford kept hyping the hell out of this game too. I mean, Zombie Aliens... really???

This is such a shame. I stayed away from all sorts of previews for this game but when I started seeing videos for myself close to its launch I was shocked at how average it looked. Now with all these reviews coming out I dont think ill even bother getting this.

dont, i did and it sux bad
fossilfern  +   900d ago
yeah saw it at a friends house and it was awful. What a waste of time and this is considered cannon? Im sure Fox are regretting that decision or whoever authorised this to be cannon.

Its unforgivable that the license has been so grossly mishandled. I sadly bought intothe hype and now I am just disappointed.

I still remember the first CG screenshots that were released when Aliens: Colonial Marines was announced. They looked so awesome. Too bad we got this game instead of what we were hoping back in the days

Agreed! I had two console purchases planned for the next 4-or-so weeks: Rayman Legends and Aliens Colonial Marines... The first is delayed to the point that I won't give a rats ass when it releases and the second one is stillborn.

Oh well, at least my other hobbies wont let me down. I absolutely LOVE gin and hookers \o/

I thank you......Said it a million times before Gearbox are shit & complete bellends but no one listens!

Hmm what is going on here???
a_adji  +   902d ago
LOL, I think they can keep this one and delay it forever.

I was looking forward to it but for the general consensus to be so strong we are not going in.

Another company on the brink me thinks and as games get more expensive a single mishap like his maybe the end for some.

Good, stick to Borderlands now, k?

I told you!

I think Gearbox and Nihilistic should team up.

Couldn't be any worse could they.
spicelicka  +   901d ago
How the hell do they make borderlands so amazing and suck at everything else??

Anything they try to revive just goes to shit, they need to focus on what they're good from now on.
