Aliens: Colonial Marines was in development on and off for several years – but when it released at the beginning of 2013, it was deduced as the worst game ever featuring Colonial Marines, Xenomorphs and any combination of the same. Even worse, it’s canon.

However, it sparked off a controversy on how developer Gearbox Software released a game that was fundamentally not the same as the one they showcased in previews. As a result, a class action law-suit was recently filed by Edelson LLC and Damion Perrinne, stating that the product that gamers bought was not the same as that they were promised.

Now publisher Sega has responded, stating that it “cannot comment on specifics of ongoing litigation, but we are confident that the lawsuit is without merit and we will defend it vigorously.

A representative from Gearbox stated though that, “Attempting to wring a class action lawsuit out of a demonstration is beyond meritless. We continue to support the game, and will defend the rights of entertainers to share their works-in-progress without fear of frivolous litigation.”
