Alien fans have been hoping for a new survival horror title in the franchise since Creative Assembly and Sega’s Alien: Isolation launched in 2014, but sadly, one hasn’t been forthcoming. It seems, however, that the wait for a game (or even two) that fits that description isn’t going to be a long one.

As per a report published by Tom Henderson on Insider-Gaming, a new AAA survival horror Alien game is currently in development. While it’s unknown which studio is handling the project, the report claims that it takes inspiration from the likes of Resident Evil and Dead Space, and is tentatively targeting a Holiday 2023 launch for PC and current-gen consoles. Allegedly, the game is being developed under the codename Marathon.

Additionally, Henderson also claims that the same source has said that a sequel to the aforementioned Alien: Isolation is also either in early development, or in the process of being pitched. There’s no word on whether Creative Assembly is returning for the project- more importantly, there’s very little certainty over whether the project even exists right now, so take that as you will.

Regardless of whether or not the Isolation sequel happens, if the 2023 survival horror title is indeed real, then it should be interesting to see when it gets announced, especially with The Game Awards scheduled for December 8.

Currently, two Alien games are officially known to be in development- Focus Entertainment and Tindalos Interactive’s single player squad-based action title Aliens: Dark Descentand Survios’ unnamed VR horror title.
