Joystiq: "Despite first being announced by publisher Sega in 2006, development on Aliens: Colonial Marines didn't begin at Gearbox until after the title was revealed to the world."
eh, its like 6 years, so you know what? Thats still more than enough time to real out a triple A game.
it is too long. the longer it takes the more risk of developers needing to update stuff they have already completed to keep up with the market. it is a horrible cycle that generally means the game is at serious risk of sucking bad.
2006? Sega/Gearbox sure took their time then. But what happened to the Aliens; colonial marines game for ps2 and xbox?
