some information about an Aliens
shooter that was a
possible Boss Key Productions project when his studio was still in operation. Cliff has
been talking a lot about games lately, so perhaps he is still feeling the itch
that's lead to a couple of recent
suggesting he's open to
returning to the game industry. Here are the tweets about discussions of an
Aliens game where you would play as Newt, presumably to mostly come out at
Funfact: Before BKP shut down we were in talks to do a new game in the Aliens
franchise with Fox.
Then Disney bought them and that got lost in the shuffle, darnit.
Ripley would be alive and be your "Cortana/Anya." You'd play as grown Newt. On
Earth. Weyland-Yutani are weaponizing the aliens in a Black Mesa style facility
and, of course, all hell breaks loose.
Your robotic pal i.e. Bishop? A new one named "Casey" after her doll in Aliens.
I always said I'd never want to work on someone else's IP. Only exceptions for
me personally? Aliens and Transformers.
(Erase ALL canon after Aliens, BTW.)
