Well this brightened my day. Gearbox Software is getting a reputation for resurrecting certain vaporware titles these days, but there's no reason for them to stop with Duke. Aliens: Colonial Marines
, a squad-based survival horror FPS based on the popular scifi series, has been in development at Gearbox for the last few years but we haven't gotten any concrete news on it in quite some time. Gearbox CEO and chief franchise resurrector Randy Pitchford showed some screenshots
of the game during PAX last weekend, and stated that the game is a top priority for his studio.
It's nice to know Duke isn't the only one coming back from the dead--when I heard Gearbox was redeeming 3D Realm's decade-plus fiasco, I feared that the Colonial Marines had been left to be nuked from orbit.
