"The war between science fiction's most profitable extraterrestrial races has raged across multiple media for almost three decades now. Beginning as a series of comics in 1990, the Aliens vs Predator franchise has since spawned three novels, two blockbuster movies and even a line of action figures, but their definitive battles have taken place in video games.
In 1994, developer Rebellion turned the crossover concept into one of the decade's most atmospheric first-person shooters with the Atari Jaguar exclusive AvP. The game may not have been enough to save the ill-fated console from silicone hell, but its legacy remained strong within the genre, influencing the studio to revisit the series in 1999.
Seemingly, you can't keep a good franchise down. Early next year, the developer will attempt to build on its success with 1999's AvP with a brand new title of the same name. But are there any avenues left to explore within this universe, or is Rebellion merely flogging a dead Xenomorph?"
