An Alien MMO Shooter For Consoles and PC Is Also In Development, FoxNext Confirms

"There is still more to come" beyond the recently announced mobile title.

Alien: Isolation

A number of people were left understandably disappointed when it was recently announced that Alien: Blackout would be a mobile game– hardly the full-fledged console and PC title we’ve been waiting for since Isolation launched back in 2014. However, FoxNext has assured fans that Blackout is not the only new Alien game currently in development. 

Last year, FoxNext confirmed that a new Alien title for consoles and PC was in development at Cold Iron Studios, and in a press release sent out recently, they confirmed that that was still very much the case, which means that Blackout shouldn’t be confused with that game. FoxNext confirmed that beyond Blackout, there’s “even more entries in Amanda Ripley’s story soon to be announced”, before going on to explicitly mention the Cold Iron Studios game, which, interestingly enough, they also confirmed is an MMO shooter.

“FoxNext Games’ studio, Cold Iron Studios, is also currently at work on a massively multiplayer online shooter set in the Alien cinematic universe for consoles and PC,” the press release stated. Meanwhile, the official Alien Twitter page also reassured fans that “there is still more to come… very soon.”

It should be interesting to see how an MMO shooter based on the Alien franchise works- and I’m still not sure if that’s the kind of game Isolation fans have been looking forward to. Either way, it’s best to reserve judgment for now, at least until we hear or see something more concrete about the game. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more updates until then.
