In an ongoing lawsuit filed for Aliens: Colonial Marines' being falsely advertised, Gearbox Software has distanced itself from Sega, claiming that it funded the game and never saw any royalties from the Sonic publisher.
Earlier this week, 20th Century Fox trademarked a new Aliens video game, giving fans hope the dreadful Aliens: Colonial Marines wouldn't be the final nail in the series' coffin. Now a new report has offered more details on the next title, including a very interesting protagonist choice.
Sega's European branch came under scrutiny from the U.K.'s Advertising Standards Agency for the Aliens: Colonial Marines marketing, and has acknowledged the trailer did not "accurately reflect" the retail release.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is well known for needing a bit of … work, let’s say. The game suffers from a variety of glitches and problems in both its single and multiplayer modes. We have known for a while that Gearbox was working on fixing some of these problems, and PAX East gave them the chance to give us even more info.
