Aliens: Colonial Marines Wii U hasn’t been cancelled, says Sega

Thursday, 14th February 2013 13:00 GMT By Dave Cook

Aliens: Colonial Marines Wii U was rumoured to be cancelled, following a rumour sparked by a Kotaku writer. Today, Sega’s UK team has stated that this isn’t true.

Speaking with Eurogamer, a Sega UK rep said of the alleged Wii U cancellation, “It’s not true. We haven’t announced the release date for it yet but that’s it.”

The site also adds that the Wii U edition’s Amazon page had vanished.

All of the confusion stemmed from Kotaku writer Jason Schreier stating on Twitter, “We heard from a tipster about a month ago that the Wii U version had been ‘postponed indefinitely’. We reached out to Sega, and they denied it. I’ll let you guys fill in the blanks there. :)”

When Eurogamer asked Sega about the term ‘postponed indefinitely’ a rep reiterated that the game’s release date hadn’t been formally announced for Wii U.

Make of that what you will folks.

    it is very bad on the ps3/x360 so if it arrive on the wii-u it is just gonna get worse. so they should cancel it, if it get released it will only do the wii-u reputation harm.

    If what I saw in the Videogamer video’s brief look at the 360 version is representative – you can see console screens here: then, I just have to ask whether nobody had any more RESPECT than to deliver that, and the publisher then went on to ask for $60 for a chance to experience that outcome.

    Is it even worth pressing the discs for this car crash of a game? :/

    Either they put in some extra work or they should cancel it. Because from what I’ve seen so far this game needs a lot of extra work.

    And they should definitely never work with Gearbox again.
