An article on G4tv.com hashes through release scenarios for Aliens: Colonial Marines after a phone conversation with SEGA about the occassionally sketchy future of Gearbox's Aliens first-person shooter. SEGA president Mike Hayes tells them the release date for Colonial Marines will be based on the release date of Aliens versus Predator, Rebellion's upcoming multi-franchise sequel, saying: "it's unlikely that we'd launch anything within six months [after Aliens vs. Predator], but probably nine months, eight to 12 months possibly." Hayes also indicates the success of AvP at retail could end up pushing this date forwards or backwards, and will influence the third game in the series: "do we then determine when we want to bring the next one out and then, of course, determine what the third one in the series is likely to be." As for that third game, he says it "absolutely" will still happen, in spite of the cancellation of Obsidian's planned Aliens RPG.
