Alien fans rejoice as  FoxNext Games, the recently-formed “interactive entertainment” arm of 21st Century Fox, have revealed that they will be producing a new Aliens shooter title for PC and consoles.This new Alien game will be developed by Cold Iron Studios, which was formed in 2015. Cold Iron comprises of former Cryptic Studios (City of Heroes, Star Trek Online) devs, but is also home to folks who have worked on Borderlands, BioShock Infinite, Doom and Metroid Prime 3.

Cold Iron CEO Craig Zinkievich had this to say;

“It’s Aliens! We’re all excited to be working on such a storied franchise. To explore areas of the universe that fans haven’t gotten to experience, to put a game in that setting, is incredible. Having the full force of the world-class creatives, producers and business team at Fox behind the project allows us to take our plans to the next level.”

Sega held the publishing rights to Aliens video games prior to Fox, and even the critically acclaimed Alien: Isolation failed to bring in enough revenue to compensate for the development and marketing costs. Fox has now taken things to it’s own hands and has moved production in-house. As of now, no new information is available regarding to what type of game it would be. But with E3 only a few months away, it’s not unlikely that this new Alien game will also make it’s presence known.
